We will once again be working with Derby Quad to enable our students (and staff) to discover and learn new digital arts techniques and skills. Derby Quad have received a grant from the Paul Hamlyn Foundation to work with St. Clare’s and other schools in Derbyshire over the next two years. This will not be a “bolt on” activity; we aim to embed our creative/offsite learning into the curriculum.



We have held a whole school Holocaust Memorial Day in January for the last three years. We are pleased to announce that we have been granted the Beacon School for Holocaust Education award for 2018 by UCL Centre for Holocaust Education. We will be working with them over the next school year to develop our Holocaust curriculum for the benefit of all our students.


This will include jointly running a full day cpd event- “Unpacking the Holocaust.”  on 15th January in Derby. Any Derby/Derbyshire secondary teachers interested in booking a place (free) please see here.
