About Davinci

  • Check out our new promotional video below or click here to view it on YouTube.

  • Da Vinci Community School is an 11-16 mixed gender Co-operative Trust School with around 650 students. We opened in September 2004 and moved into new state of the art buildings in 2006. We have outstanding facilities that are very hard to match.  Since 2004 our exam results have improved dramatically making us one of the most improved schools in the country. 

    Our ethos and strategic development plans are based on 3 core values:

    Everyone a Learner; Everyone a Leader; Everyone Valued.

At the DNCC Business Award ceremony at the Roundhouse, da Vinci won the Chamber of Commerce Derbyshire School of the Year Award. This is recognition of our work to prepare our students for the world of work and enterprise and is especially deserved for Stella Mosley our Voc & Careers Coordinator and Christine Anderson our Curriculum AHT.
