Our thoughts and prayers are with all who died or were injured in Manchester and with their families and friends. RIP
As far as we are aware, all of our students who attended the concert are accounted for and are safe. We will keep the website updated with further information regarding our school response. The following statement was read to all students this morning:
"Good morning. By now you will be aware of the terrible events which took place last night in Manchester. As far as we are aware, all of our students who attended the concert are accounted for and safe but some may not be in school today as they had a much longer journey home than they had anticipated. Please do not worry if one of your classmates is absent.
At this time, our thoughts and prayers are with all of those who have been affected by this horrific incident. Our word of the week for this week is “Togetherness” and this is even more important today as we stand firm in our core values of respect and care for all. We do not know the full facts yet and may not for some time. The best that we can do now is to think of all of those families and schools who have been affected and to go about our day with due regard for their pain whilst carrying on with our work caring for each other as we do so.
I will keep you updated as to our school response as the day goes on. In the meantime, I have the utmost confidence that you will join me in taking a moment to reflect and then act in accordance with our Dronfieldian principles.
Thank you for your support.
T B Roche

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 when we have been designated as a National Support School as a result of our work and capacity to support improvement in other institutions. This designation follows the Ofsted Inspection of November 2015 which graded the school as "outstanding" across all aspects of our work. 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" (Gold Standard) believing and 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.
