On Monday 3 July, Derby Cathedral school held an official opening and blessing ceremony for their new building on Great Northern Road, Derby.
The ceremony featured music and readings from students and those who have been involved in the creation of the school.
Dean Peter gave a reflection on the relationship between the Cathedral and the school and the how important that is for the whole community.
Students have also created a time capsule full of reflections of their time at the school.
The service ended with the new school prayer which has been written by the student FAITH ambassador group.
Interim Director of Education, Carolyn Lewis said: “I was delighted to attend the official opening and blessing ceremony of Derby Cathedral School on 3 July. The school is particularly special being the first secondary school in our family of 111 Church of England schools in the Diocese of Derby. Since opening its doors in 2018, the school has grown admitting additional year groups annually. This September, the school will open its new Sixth Form and make headlines for being the only Church of England Sixth Form in the country.”
