Welcome to The De Montfort School

Our vision is that children at TDMS will be happy, safe, healthy and successful. We are an inclusive family school and welcome children of all abilities. Our belief is that every child has unique and individual qualities and needs to feel valued, encouraged and challenged, building their self-belief and leading to their achievement. We, therefore, pride ourselves on our ability to nurture and develop all our children. We recognise that many learners need that extra support and guidance and our provision of special and additional educational needs is excellent. Furthermore, we celebrate cultural diversity and have achieved International School Award Status.

Our motto is "Unlocking Your Child's Potential" and we have five core values that underpin everything we do.

  • The highest expectations and a genuine sense of pride
  • Developing safe and healthy lifestyles
  • Developing lifelong skills
  • Respecting others
  • Realising potential

We adopt a zero tolerance policy towards poor behaviour as this betrays our values.

We hope that this represents the things you care about and believe in and somewhere you'd want your child to be!

"I am delighted that my son was accepted to The De Montfort School. I was very excited for my son to be accepted as I heard so many good reports of the school. Once he started in September I had noticed a complete change in his behaviour and attitudes towards school. Even to the point where he enjoys homework. Something which I never experienced from his previous school. He even said he wished he could attend school at the weekends. I am very proud of what The De Montfort School has achieved in such a small amount of time."
