Dear Visitor,

Welcome to the website of Dronfield Henry Fanshawe School which provides an insight into life at the school. Through the website you are able to access an abundance of articles, news stories, photographs and documents on a wide variety of areas, with contacts details and links for further information should this be required.

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, attaining notable achievements across a spectrum of subjects and aspects of education. Sustained success over time is a strong feature of our proud history, with the website highlighting many of these accomplishments.

We firmly believe in our motto of ‘success with care’ and deliver this through our framework, structures and daily practices. 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 believe and ensure 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.
