Welcome to The North School
The North School is a popular secondary school with over 1200 students on role including a thriving sixth form. We offer a broad curriculum to enable all our students to reach their potential. We have a deep commitment to academic standards supported by a school community structure that is dedicated to maintaining the right balance between pastoral care and academic success.
Each community is led by a Principal, supported by a vice principal, two learning leaders, two pastoral support managers and also a full cohort of tutors. The purpose of this team approach is to ensure that any barriers to success are identified and dealt with to give every student the best possible educational experience and outcomes.
Whilst we strive towards academic success, we also value the 'whole child' and consequently offer a number of extra curricular activities that cater for variety of interests. There are exceptional facilities that include a fully functioning farm and reptile house, a basketball academy and even a climbing wall.
The North School has benefited from an influx of expertise and a dedicated existing body of staff. In a recent report HMI (Ofsted) commented that leaders "are working tirelessly and effectively to bring about rapid change".
