Games & The Arts

Sports, which range from the traditional to the unusual (such as flamenco, salsa dancing and yoga), help to develop pupils’ physical and emotional wellbeing as well as their teamwork skills. The arts are key to NBH’s curricular and extra-curricular offering – with plays and concerts regularly staged.  

Pastoral Care

Pupil wellbeing is at the heart of everything we do. From confidence workshops to Philosophy for Children, we incorporate excellent pastoral care into every aspect of school life. All staff are committed to nurturing character and wellbeing within the small tutor groups and warm community, so that every pupil thrives on a strong sense of belonging and security. Pupils are equipped with the skills needed to make moral and informed life choices whilst we consistently promote children’s personal
and emotional development.

Recent Scholarships

Pupils are placed at leading senior schools with academic, art, music and sports scholarships.

Head Teacher’s Philosophy

 North Bridge House provides an individually tailored co-education, celebrating high-achieving pupils in a mixed ability environment. From our focus on knowing the individual and developing strength of character, we achieve academic excellence in confident pupils who are proud of their successes. With specialist teaching and outstanding extra-curricular opportunities, we challenge and inspire each child to fulfil their true potential, providing a solid foundation for their future studies, careers and adult lives.

Outstanding Characteristics

All NBH pupils can transition from Nursery to Sixth Form without the pressure of entrance exams. From actively avoiding external assessment to encouraging personal development in a stress-free environment – complete with pet chickens – NBH sees KS1 pupils perform in the top 5% of the country for English and maths. Prep pupils do exceptionally well in 11+ and 13+ CE assessments – with bespoke preparation for the various academic pathways.
