Dear Visitor,

Welcome to our website. I hope that it provides you with an insight into our work, organisation and learning resources as well as providing information about DHFS.

We have a long and proud tradition of success from the original Dronfield Grammar School, endowed in 1579 by Henry Fanshawe, to the present day as a Specialist Technology College with over 1800 students aged from 11-18 years. Our aim is to provide excellence in all areas of our work with young people so that they may move forward, ready to take their rightful place in society as citizens of the 21st century.

We are proud of the fact that we are recognised as an "Investor in People", ensuring that every member of our community matters and is valued for the unique contribution they make to our school. We welcome and celebrate diversity. We also challenge all within our community, adults and students, to give of their best at all times in an environment where commitment outweighs compliance.

Students are provided with both challenge and support in order that they may achieve their full potential across a wide range of curricular and additional opportunities. Our Enhanced Learning Programme for "Gifted and Talented" students is well established and thriving with numerous opportunities for them to undertake activities geared to their particular area(s) of excellence. They may take part in International Collaborative Study with youngsters in Germany, Spain, French Guiana and Slovenia by engaging with the Erasmus+ Project or specialise in their own field via other national bodies such as Sport England.
