Inspiring every student to aim high and be confident in achieving an aspirational career goal

At Derby Pride Academy we work hard to improve our students' attainment, behaviour, self-esteem and confidence, supporting their development as responsible members of the community. We recognise the importance of ensuring that they fully benefit from an extensive careers education programme. 

Our vision reflects our desire to inspire each of our students to aim towards a rewarding and successful career, regardless of their background and circumstances. 

Throughout their education with us, students will have access to a wide range of information and individual guidance to help them choose the best option for when they leave school. They will take part in a variety of activities designed to provide them with many meaningful encounters with employers and the world of work, such as visiting speakers from business, education and training providers. Alumni talks, visits to post-16 education and training providers, CV workshops and mock interviews, STEM subject visits and activities and 1:1 guidance interviews with a Level 6 qualified Careers Adviser and the school's Careers Leader.


Derby Pride Academy's Careers Leader is Mrs Ellis Hopkinson who can be contacted on 01332 349616, by email, or by students in school at any time.

If you are an employer or organisation who would like to support our students by helping with a talk or event in school or if you are able to offer work experience we would love to hear from you. If you are interested in creating links with our school please contact Mrs Ellis Hopkinson at the academy.
