Welcome from the Principal
It gives me great pleasure to welcome you to Landau Forte College Derby.
I was certain from my first visit to this school that it was the right choice for me as Principal. My aim is that any student or parent who walks through our doors feels the same sense of belonging.
As a popular and well-established secondary school and sixth form, the College has many strengths. It also has enormous potential and we are always adapting to make sure what we offer is the very best for families in Derby.
Our students are inquisitive and engaging young people of all abilities and backgrounds. We support them to achieve excellent qualifications and make exceptional progress with us.
With talented teachers, extensive facilities and activities and an array of trips each year, they benefit from a wealth of opportunities both inside and beyond the classroom.
As an Outstanding school we have high expectations of our students’ achievement and behaviour, and all members of the College uphold core values of respect, tolerance, courtesy and cooperation.
Please do not hesitate to contact us with any questions. I look forward to hearing from you.
