Highly qualified teachers deliver broad academic and creative curriculums, tailored to challenge and stimulate pupils according to individual needs. The curriculum is designed to educate each child, promoting resilience and adaptability while ensuring real-life issues, such as BLM, are brought to the forefront. Students prepare for 16+ and university with one-to-one mentoring, careers fairs and the Inspiring Futures Programme.
Games & The Arts
The broad-ranging games curriculum is designed to promote pupils’ physical and emotional well-being and provide a sport for everyone, with students frequenting the best facilities for outdoor adventure and water sports, as well yoga, martial arts and fitness classes. The arts are just as key to both the curricular and extra-curricular offering: Plays and concerts are regularly staged, art exhibitions are an annual event and pupils relish the opportunity to perform in the local area.
Pupil wellbeing is at the heart of everything: The school day is tailored around the teenage body clock to provide a later midweek start, while an onsite counsellor and confidence workshops ensure pupils are not just provided with people to talk to but with people they want to talk to. 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.
Students receive offers from a range of universities, typically accepting places at Oxbridge and Russell Group institutions.
Head Teacher’s Philosophy
NBH provides an individually tailored co-education, celebrating high-achieving pupils in a mixed ability environment. With a strong focus on knowing the individual and developing strength of character, pupils achieve academic success. Specialist teaching and extra-curricular opportunities challenge and inspire children to fulfil their true potential, while providing a foundation for their future studies and careers.
Students benefit from a later start on Wednesdays in line with leading research into the teenage brain – namely, sleeping patterns. Oxbridge preparation and ‘World of Work’ guest speaker events best inform students for successful futures, while staff work with UCL’s Institute of Education on the latest research-informed teaching methods.
