Schools in Chesterfield

For families with school age children, choosing the right school is vitally important and we have many good schools in the area with several of them being very recently built. However, each child’s needs are different and each school offers invidividal elements that make them distinctive from each other. The best way to decide is to visit the school for yourself and look at what it offers. You can find more help and information on our schools via the Derbyshire County Council website.
