In November 2017, the school introduced a house system consisting of five houses named after peaks in Derbyshire.  A total of 897 new housing units have been granted building permits in the school basin, which is expected to produce 139 students between the ages of 11 and 16. Kevin Gaiderman, CEO of Chellaston, said: “Our new facility will provide in-house sports capabilities and additional classrooms and meeting rooms. The venue will also provide us with a space to organize large meetings and events inside, including bespoke presentation evenings for the Academy. To deal with this situation, Swarkestone Road School intends to build a two-storey multi-purpose hall for meetings, classes, training and performance. In 1997, the school was expanded to meet the growing number of students who wanted to participate. A special temporary math block, with eight classrooms, has been completed. The gymnasium has also been completed. Humanities Block was built in 2000 with four other scientific laboratories in a new building (bulk specialized in biology education), separated from the existing scientific block.
In January 2003, the Humanities block was significantly expanded and a refectory (replacing the main hall as a canteen) and a large new computer suite were added.  A new multi-million euro building is planned for a derby high school. He added, however, that the overall result was “very regrettable,” but that he did not want it to overshadow the “extremely positive feedback on all other aspects of our Academy.” The declaration also stresses the need to relocate existing sports fields to an area south of the Hauptschule, currently covered by forest. A measurement of the trees was carried out to determine the condition of existing trees and to determine which trees could be removed. The school has a schedule of 50 hours, two weeks, on a general manager. At Level 3, no child has a reduced curriculum. French and Spanish are taught, although two hours a week can be re-educated in literacy and the hunt for Catch-up English.  The school serves houses located in both derby City Council`s administrative districts and Derbyshire County Council, and the burden of ensuring that there are sufficient school places rests with both local authorities. He stated that some procedural issues involving some students in Class 12 who, despite leaving school in July, had been wrongly classified as work experience, gave rise to questions about the safety and security of students. “It`s particularly disappointing because in 2018, when inspectors came to a brief inspection, they said the Academy was on its way to becoming an “excellent” school. In September 2004, the music and drama block was created to respond to the increase in candidates, which allowed the school to accommodate about 1,700 students.
Traditionally, school catering was managed by the school catering team.
