What's On...

Headteacher

Ofsted

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 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.
