Highly qualified teachers deliver a broad academic and creative curriculum, tailored to challenge and stimulate every pupil according to their individual needs, abilities and interests. The curriculum is designed to educate the whole child in today’s ever-changing world, promoting resilience and adaptability while ensuring real-life issues, such as the BLM, are brought to the forefront. Students are prepared for post-16 and university studies with courses delivered by institutions such as Yale University and Wharton Business School.
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. 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 potential.
Students benefit from a later start on a Wednesday in line with leading research into the teenage brain – specifically sleeping patterns. Oxbridge preparation, higher education fairs and ‘World of Work’ guest speaker events best inform students for successful futures.
