Who we are

Denstone College is an exceptional, coeducational boarding and day school set in beautiful grounds on the Staffordshire Derbyshire border. The College was founded as an independent school with the aim of providing sound education through principles grounded in Christian faith. Denstone seeks to enable young men and women to embrace possibility and become articulate and confident contributors to society.

    All-round education

Academic achievement is a high priority at Denstone but we believe in an all-round education packed with opportunities in sports, music, drama, Duke of Edinburgh and other activities. This provides our students with opportunities and challenges which help them realise their true potential. We believe in helping our pupils find the university which suits their needs and interests as individuals, with roughly half going on to Russell Group universities each year.

    Stand out facilities

We are particularly proud of Denstone’s beautiful grounds and buildings and these are amongst its standout features. Denstone has undergone many changes over the years and more recent excellent additions and upgrades include a sports complex, music school, library, technology spaces, swimming pool, golf course, tennis and netball courts and two astroturfs.

    Pastoral care

Denstone College prides itself in making a difference to the lives of all pupils. Many of our staff live on site and we provide high standards of pastoral care so that students build strong relationships with their teachers, tutors, Head of House, Head of School and our Chaplain. Our Chapel remains central to school life and parents are invited to join us for the weekly Eucharist as well as matches, concerts and plays.
