Head of the Year 7 School Message

Northfield 184

I would like to extend a warm welcome to our current and prospective parents and carers on behalf of all at Northfield School. I have taught here since September 1999 and am proud to have been a part of the planning and establishment of our Year 7 School.

We have worked hard to ensure that the Year 7 School builds on, and enriches what we aim to achieve at Northfield.
We strive to develop in our students a strong sense of community and encourage and celebrate the demonstration of our core values of respect, honesty, and resilience.

In addition, pupils choosing to join Northfield School at the end of Key Stage 2 can look forward to the benefits of being taught in a small school within a large school supported by dedicated staff and state-of-the-art facilities. This build ensures a smooth transition from Year 6 to 7 by eradicating the anxieties many students feel when leaving their relatively small primary schools to join a large secondary school. The contemporary architecture and style of the building allows for a more creative and flexible approach to curriculum design and the curriculum has been planned to allow students to develop the skills necessary to progress in a modern and rapidly changing world.

We are very proud of our unique ‘School within a School’ and what it allows us to achieve on a daily basis. We would encourage you to visit and see for yourself!
