Games & the Arts
Sport is essential to pupil wellbeing and growth. The schools have large playgrounds complete with climbing frames, and an indoor gym or music room for PE and dance lessons. The arts are key to the curricular and extra-curricular offering, and exhibitions, plays and concerts regularly feature in the school calendar.
With an embedded wellbeing programme and dedicated pastoral leads, the school promotes children’s personal and emotional growth. Staff are committed to nurturing confidence, and the school’s strong sense of community is grown further in the children’s small, close-knit classes. Happy children learn best and at NBH, the results speak for themselves.
Pupils are placed at leading pre-prep and prep schools.
Head Teacher’s Philosophy
We pride ourselves on really getting to know each individual child on their journey to the next school milestone and beyond. It is through truly knowing the individual, cultivating their character and promoting their wellbeing, that we can help each child to achieve their full potential.
Children benefit from specialist teaching from the outset of their education, and EYFS and KS1 results in English and maths significantly exceed the national average. All NBH pupils can transition from nursery to sixth form without entrance examination pressure. NBH works closely with families to choose the right path for each child, providing an all-through education as well as bespoke preparation for highly competitive independent schools.
