Open Day - Saturday, 27th September

Our next Open Day is on Saturday, 27th September, from 9.30am to 12noon, and is for anyone who is interested in getting a feel for the School. It is for all sections of the School - Infant, Junior, Senior and Sixth Form.

This year we will be particularly pleased to welcome girls as well as boys in anticipation of the School's phased move to co-education from September 2015 (see announcement below).

Whilst there is no need to book, it would help us immensely for catering purposes if prospective visitors could follow the link and complete the Registration of Interest form.

We look forward to welcoming you to Nottingham High School!

At Nottingham High School we have a well-deserved national reputation both for our academic success and for the high standards achieved in the wide range of activities we offer.

By championing the individual and encouraging intellectual curiosity, we ensure that all pupils not only achieve outstanding examination results but leave the school as well-rounded, confident young people, ready to play their part in tomorrow’s society. 

I very much hope that I will have the pleasure of welcoming you and your family to the School as we believe that a visit is the best way to discover what the School is really like.

Other news

Nottingham High School to go co-ed

The Board of Governors of Nottingham High School has announced that the School will become co-educational in stages from September 2015.  The Governors have changed the Articles of Association of the School to enable this move to be made and have also received approval by both the Charity Commission and the Department for Education.

Girls will be selected to join the Sixth form and Reception year, Year 1 and Year 2 from September 2015.  In September 2016 girls will be selected to join Year 7 and also to join any of the other years in the School. 

Details of the announcement made to parents can be found here, together with a document answering the most likely questions.

Headmaster Kevin Fear said: “Our 500th anniversary has inevitably been a period of reflection as well as future planning.  We believe that the time to take this decision is now, when the School is consistently achieving high standards in terms of examination success, pastoral care, co-curricular activities and is in a position of financial stability.  We believe that our plans are educationally sound, in the interests of our current and future pupils, and will undoubtedly ensure that we are the top performing school in the region.”
