The Bemrose School is a foundation trust secondary school situated on Uttoxeter New Road, Derby, England, with an age range of pupils from 11 – 18. The school has enjoyed considerable success in meeting the needs of students from many different backgrounds and has helped pupils of all abilities to achieve better than average progress, as was recognised by the September 2012 Ofsted inspection. It also has one of the lowest NEET (not in education, employment or training) figures of any inner city schools in the Country, in 2012 it was below 2%. In recognition of the high quality CEG (careers, education and guidance) work the school was awarded the Career Mark5 award in 2010.Since April 2004 the school has been led by Headteacher Jo Ward, who arrived in challenging times due to a critical Ofsted judgement in June 2003 which had placed the school in special measures. Since then exam results have improved year on year and her leadership has transformed the school from being Ofsted judged inadequate to good. Student behaviour has also improved significantly and the school was complimented as a "harmonious and friendly community" in the most recent Ofsted inspection.In June 2012 the Royal Navy launched a scheme to affiliate its latest submarine with a secondary school in Derby. The city was first affiliated with HMS Ambush as the submarine engines are made at Rolls-Royce in Derby. The Bemrose School was chosen as the affiliated school, an affiliation which will last for the lifetime of the submarine. In the summer of 2012 members of the ships company visited the school for the formal affiliation event and staff from the school have visited the submarine at BAE systems in Barrow-in-Furness. The school is very proud to have been chosen and to be affiliated to HMS Ambush.
