Nestling on the border of two counties, Denstone College could be described as the top independent school in Derbyshire. Or indeed the top independent school in Staffordshire. Pupil numbers have grown significantly over the last decade, with the College now full and waiting lists in operation for most year groups. 

What makes Denstone College one of the best independent schools in Staffordshire?

Inspectors have remarked upon the high quality education Denstone College provides, both inside and outside the classroom. Of particular note are the excellent pupil:teacher ratio, small class sizes, first top class academic examination results, winning sporting performance and high quality pastoral care.

What sets a Denstone College boarding and day education apart from the rest?

The three school system, considered to be highly effective by both Ofsted and ISI, means that pupils live and work in schools appropriate to their age, rather than in houses, which is the traditional independent school structure.  Members of staff become specialists in certain age groups, whether it is the Junior School (ages 11 – 13), the Middle School (14 – 16) and the Senior School (16 – 18). Many parents cite this as their main reason for choosing an all-round education at Denstone College. 

There are a number of scholarships available at Denstone College, such as Sixth Form Scholarships, Academic Scholarships, Sports Scholarships, Music Scholarships and Drama Scholarships.
