Head's Welcome

 

Headteacher's Welcome - Mrs Nicki Hodges, Headteacher

Thank you for taking the time to visit our website.  I would like to take this opportunity to tell you a little bit more about the school. 

Putting Achievement First

At the school we value to importance of continuous school improvement and learning for both our staff and students.  We recognise that people have different strengths and interests and we aim to provide opportunity to further them where possible. As a result of our recent improvements we ensure that we always put achievement first. We ask that students and staff have high expectations of themselves and commit to this ethos.

Our aim is for the students to leave this school as happy and confident individuals who have achieved their potential. We work hard to raise their aspirations for the future and what is possible in life when you try very hard and use the support that is available. 

The message we give to our students is;

1)     Always try your very best

2)     Always respect other people's right to learn

3)     Always do as you are asked first time.

4)     Arrive to lessons on time and ready to learn

Curriculum and Pastoral Care

The North School prioritises both the academic and pastoral care of our students ensuring that we provide robust systems and high expectations of achievement and behaviour. 

There are three communities within the school that put the student at the heart of everything we do.  These communities are Essella, Mabledon and the Sixth Form. Within each community there is a Principal, Vice Principal, two learning leaders, two pastoral support managers and also their tutor.  This creates a dedicated team around the child that provides an effective platform for learning, self-improvement and academic success. 

Each child will follow a well-designed curriculum covering six lessons a day.  The teachers and subject leaders work closely to monitor each student to ensure that they make good progress in lessons, emphasise the quality and quantity of work they do and always look to see how we can help the student improve further. Students are set according to ability in academic subjects to ensure that we can provide the best support for them.  We run a grammar stream that enables the higher ability students to achieve their high aspirations and your expectations.  

We are proud of the improvements that we have made over the last couple of years and work very hard to further this level of improvement. We ask that all out staff, students and parents support us in this vision, by putting achievement first.
