The Curriculum

Sensory, practical and social experiences inspire a lifelong love of learning in the nursery. Our resident storyteller and specialist music and dance lessons foster imaginative, creative thinking, while Forest School develops essential soft skills to aid higher cognitive abilities. Designed to spark children’s curiosity for knowledge and develop their ability to problem-solve, our curriculum is individually tailored, providing one-to-one support and a real sense of achievement for every child.

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.

Pastoral Care

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.

Recent Scholarships

Pupils gain places at UK leading pre-prep and prep schools, or transition to NBH’s ‘Excellent’ Prep School, Regent’s Park.

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. 

Outstanding Characteristics

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.
