About Us

Pear Tree Community Junior is located in the Pear Tree area to the south of Derby City Centre. The school takes pupils from the ages of 7-11 across four year groups (Year 3 to 6). The vast majority of our pupils transfer from Pear Tree Infant School, that shares the same site. We have three classes of 30 pupils in each year group and have up to 360 pupils on roll at any one time.

The school serves a diverse community. We have pupils from a wide range of countries and cultures; there are 35 different languages across the whole school.

Pear Tree offers an interesting and exciting curriculum which incorporates many enrichment activities, including a variety of trips, visits and visitors. In addition, the school benefits from a purpose built dance studio, art block and sports field, allowing our children to experience a high quality curriculum in designated spaces.

Our pupils have a strong work ethic and are dedicated to their learning. Visitors regularly comment on their exceptional manners and their respectful attitudes. Children are encouraged to be ready, respectful and responsible for their learning. We want all our children to grow and flourish.


A warm welcome from Pear Tree Community Junior School. Pear Tree Community Junior is a caring and nurturing environment where we encourage all of our children to be Ready, Respectful and Responsible each and every day.
We teach our children to respect themselves and show respect and appreciation for others.


We provide an exciting curriculum so that all our pupils are able to develop their interests and talents and become happy, lifelong learners who acquire skills and abilities that enable them to flourish. I hope the website gives you a flavour of our school. 

If you would like to visit, please contact the school office who will be happy to arrange a mutually convenient time.


Kind regards
