Northwood Senior is a new, dynamic, co-educational secondary school in South West London, offering a transformational education for pupils aged 11-16.
We are academically ambitious: Our pupils enjoy an education that is rounded, stimulating and healthy – both physically and mentally; an education where good grades and GCSE success is still important – along with healthy competition in sport, drama, music and the arts, but where the focus is on developing the self; building reflective, community-minded young adults who have a passion for learning and the skill set and confidence to tackle the exciting futures that await them. Our modern and stimulating curriculum includes thematic studies, maths mastery, hands-on science, and cross-curricular learning, alongside well-being, community work and life-skills – plus plenty of Sport, Drama, Art, and DT. Our innovative approach creates more active engagement in lessons, the development of higher order thinking skills, strong teamwork, and motivated pupils who are better able to develop the real-world analytical and problem-solving skills that pays dividends in examinations and the workplaces of the future.
We are pastorally kind: As a smaller school, what matters to us most is building a community in which children can thrive. We have a strong and supportive tutorial and house system to ensure that every pupil is well known by every member of staff.
Entry is via Head’s interview, digital data, and references from current school. We offer regular taster sessions and All-Rounder Scholarships for both Year 7 and Year 9 entry.
Exit is to the next step that’s right for each pupil – whether that’s college or school to do A Levels, B-tec or something else.
If you are looking for a smaller school that offers outstanding teaching, where every pupil is known well by every member of staff and which can help them develop the confidence and skills required for the challenges of modern life, please come and see us. We look forward to meeting you.
