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

Arboretum Street:  We have been told that until September 2016 Arboretum Street will be one way between Addison Street and Balmoral Road.  

Bad Weather: 

In the event of any bad weather in the coming weeks information will be posted here by 6.30 a.m. in the morning.  We expect that School would always remain open but respect that individuals will have to decide whether it is safe for them to travel.  Once pupils have travelled into school we expect them to remain until the end of the School Day.


Please note there are new access arrangements in place for Valley Road Sports Ground.  Please enter via the new entrance from Hucknall Road northbound only. The original gate closer to Tring Vale is now Exit Only. 

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.”
