Derbyshire Skills Festival 2019

Belper School recommends a visit to Derbyshire Skills Festival 2019 which takes place at Derby Arena on Wednesday 25 September and Thursday 26 September 2019. This event is particularly relevant for students in year 11 as it highlights a wide range of learning opportunities.  It is also a great place to start to gather information about future options available after completing year 11.

Welcome to Belper!

I hope everyone has had a relaxing and enjoyable summer. The weather has been a bit mixed but at least there has been some warm sunshine. I’m really looking forward to starting the new term soon and have been working hard over the summer to prepare thoroughly. I have been in school over the holidays and everything is looking great.

I want to congratulate our year 11 and 13 students who achieved some fantastic record breaking exam results in August. All their hard work has paid off!

Students return to school at 1pm on Tuesday 3rd for year 13, Wednesday 4th for years 7 to 11 and Thursday 5th for year 12. The timings and full details are listed below.

See you soon!

Nick Goforth
