We have out performed other local secondary schools with our best-ever GCSE results, opened our state-of-the-art brand new school, revealed our smart new uniform and embraced the future with a New name - Heritage High School. This presentation shows what is now available to you, your children and the wider community at Heritage High School, a Specialist Mathematics and Computing College.

It is now one of the best-equipped schools in Derbyshire and possibly in the country. It has the most up to date resources & technology; designed with input from students, staff, governors and a range of building experts - with learning in mind it meets the needs of current and future generations of learners. During the school day it is primarily used by the students of the school. During out-of-school hours it is available for use by the wider community.
