The Curriculum

The curriculum includes the statutory framework of the national curriculum. It has been extended to reflect the particular ethos of the school and will continue to be developed in response to children’s needs.

Games & the Arts

We offer football, netball, rugby and hockey and cricket in the summer term. This year we have added the new sports: volleyball and handball. There is a strong swim squad. Music, art and drama flourish with most of our pupils playing an instrument and all of our children involved in our drama productions.

Pastoral Care

We try to give the pupils strategies and skills to help with the social complexities of life, both inside and outside the classroom. We are here to help them at each stage of their journey. As headmistress, Mrs Knollys oversees the wellbeing and pastoral care of all children at NHP. The deputy head (pastoral) works closely with staff, the school counsellor, the school nurse, the form teachers, the SENCos and the playground staff to provide wrap-around pastoral care for all children at NHP.

Recent Scholarships

This year NHP pupils won several scholarships including art and academic to senior schools.

Head Teacher’s Philosophy

The headmistress strongly believes that children thrive where they are happy and in a nurturing environment – kindness, courtesy and concern for others are key themes at NHP and we look to bring out the best in each of our pupils during their time with us. We are a thinking school and through our learning habits and values, we ensure that NHP pupils develop key life skills alongside academic ones.

Outstanding Characteristics

NHP is an inclusive, creative and vibrant school where every child is nurtured to reach their full potential. We are a thinking school dedicated to honing and enhancing teaching practice within the School and we offer academic rigour without losing the joy of childhood.
