The Frederick Gent Comprehensive School is a comprehensive school on Mansfield Road (B6019) in South Normanton in the Bolsover district of Derbyshire.

History[edit]

It was built in 1958 to replace the secondary schools of both Pinxton (Kirkstead, which became a junior school on Kirkstead Road) and South Normanton (New Street Secondary Modern). It is less than 200 metres from junction 28 of the M1. The school was rebuilt in a £8.7m programme from July 2003 until December 2004.

Admissions[edit]

The school provides secondary education for pupils aged 11 – 16.

Frederick Gent has a good and growing reputation as an innovative, high-achieving school with a well-ordered, caring and secure environment in which all youngsters can learn with confidence.[1] This was recognised by being designated as one of the first Leading Edge Schools. In the last few years the school has been transformed by moving into new buildings, becoming a Specialist school Mathematics and ICT School[2] in April 2004 and obtaining Artsmark Gold.

Mrs. Julie Broadbent is the headteacher, replacing Martyn Cooper at the end of the 2012/13 academic year.

Academic performance[edit]

The school gets very good GCSE results, with a rising trend. [1]
