The Curriculum

Transformative teaching lies at the heart of our modern, stimulating curriculum creating motivated pupils who develop the analytical and problem solving skills that pay dividends in public examinations and the workplaces of the future.

Games & The Arts

Own sports court. Keen to explore both traditional and alternative sports and make use of nearby facilities – e.g. Tooting common, Lido, athletics track, Streatham Leisure Centre, ice rink and velodrome. Creativity is important: art, DT, drama, coding, and film clubs.

Pastoral Care

We offer outstanding pastoral care to help each pupil develop the skills required for the challenges of modern life. Wellbeing is built into the weekly timetable and our tutorial system and thematic learning approach ensures that every pupil is well known, with all staff invested in the success and happiness of each child. Our house system ensures that we have built-in both vertical and horizontal support structures.

Recent Scholarships

Pupils leave at 16 for A-levels, IB or BTECs at another school or specialist sixth form college.

Head Teacher’s Philosophy

We are academically ambitious but pastorally supportive. As a new school, we combine the best of modern educational practice with committed, innovative teachers who can transform the educational experience of our pupils so that they can move on to the next stage of their education with confidence and purpose.

Outstanding Characteristics

A smaller school that stretches and supports in equal measure; where each pupil is known by all and is part of and contributes not only to the whole school community but the wider community too, using local facilities and working with local groups. Dynamic, modern teaching that transforms pupils’ educational experience – with proven measurable impact. Part of the wider Northwood Schools family delivering outstanding education for ages four to 16, which in turn, is part of the wider Dukes Education family.
