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. 

In the meantime, why not take a look at our school video and get a sneak preview of life here at Nottingham High School?

School Notices

Open Day - Saturday 26th September

9:30 - 12 noon, the whole family are welcome to join us on our Open Day for tours and activities around the school.

Martin Jones – Former Teacher and School Counsellor.

It is with great sadness that we announce the death of Martin Jones on Wednesday 16th September 2015.
Martin worked at the High School for a remarkable 49 years, retiring at the end of last Summer Term.  In recent years he was the School’s counsellor but prior to that he was Housemaster of Cooper’s, a Mathematics teacher and someone who loved the outdoors being responsible for numerous trips and expeditions and was fully involved in the running of both CCF and Duke of Edinburgh.
Martin was a very popular member of staff – all recognized his passion for the High School but above all his human qualities of friendship, empathy and integrity. The School flag has been flying half-mast over the past few days and a one minute silence was observed in assembly this morning.
Mr Fear, Headmaster said “Martin Jones has been one of the most inspirational teachers I have come across in my own career.  The reason for this is his outstanding care and his ability to listen.  This is a much under-rated skill yet Martin was always prepared to patiently allow pupils or colleagues to share their concerns with him.  He was never judgmental but his wise counsel and empathy made him a natural in his counselling role". 
He will be very much missed by all in the School and ON community and our thoughts are very much with his wife Shirley, daughters Sarah and Cathy, and all of his family and many friends at this sad time.
Martin’s funeral will be held on Friday 25 September at 13.15 at Bramcote Crematorium and afterwards at The Nottingham Belfry Hotel, Nottingham Business Park, Mellors Way, Nottingham NG8 6PY.
