Our School's Aims 

We are an academic community where intelligent children from a wide variety of social backgrounds are given the maximum opportunity to strive for the highest standards.  

We want children to develop their individuality and we must identify their talents in an environment where they feel safe and valued.  Ours is a diverse, down-to-earth school which thrives on curiosity, challenge, encouragement and kindness; where everyone listens and responds to each other.  It is our shared sense of belonging which gives our school its energy, its collective strength, its rigour and its ability to inspire pupils to excel.  Excellent teaching in a disciplined environment is at the heart of the School.  

We very much value parental interest, co-operation and support. We aim to be approachable. Through our unique tutor system, we aim to develop productive links between home and school. We aim to be a supportive, caring and friendly community with the promotion of self-discipline, reflection, social responsibility and integrity at the heart of all that we do.  

We encourage everyone to join in a wide range of activities, to discover their talents and grow in self-confidence and self-knowledge. We also try to develop skills of leadership, fellowship and service both for individual benefit and for the overall strength of the community of which our children are an essential part.  Nottingham High School provides an education for life and a lifetime of support through our dedicated staff and former pupils.

We look forward to meeting you!
