Tibshelf Community School opened on a brand new £17m purpose built site in November 2013. We were inspected by Ofsted (September 2021) and were judged to be a ‘Good’ school in all categories.

We are a popular, over-subscribed, 816 strong 11-16 school serving a rural area of North East Derbyshire. We draw students from a geographically dispersed catchment area of nine villages. The official PAN is 150 students per year group but numbers are well above this in all year groups. The proportion of students from minority ethnic groups is very low and significantly below national averages. 30% of the intake are ‘disadvantaged’ and are supported through Pupil Premium funding; 43 pupils have an EHC Plan, including a number of pupils with ASD. The school’s deprivation index is very close to the national average, but it is in the top third within Derbyshire LA and contains a number of wards with extremely high levels of deprivation. Prior attainment data suggests that students are close to national average.

Ofsted September 2021 said:

“There are high expectations of every pupil at Tibshelf Community School. Teachers and leaders are ambitious of what pupils can achieve academically and how they can develop personally. Pupils have very strong relationships with staff at the school. There is a feeling of family and community which is evident and pupils say they are happy and feel safe”
