Norden High School & Sports College offers a caring, supportive and stimulating environment in which all young people can reach their full potential. We are committed to high standards of achievement and behaviour, both in and out of school. We aim to promote honesty, respect, confidence and tolerance and ensure pupils are equipped to lead happy and fulfilling lives in the world beyond school.

Recent achievements include the award of the Investors in People standard and designation as a Specialised Sports College. We are the lead school in Hyndburn for the PESSCL strategy (PE, School Sport and Club Links), linking with nine secondary and over 40 primary schools to deliver high quality PE and sport.


The curriculum at Norden High School & Sports College is designed to provide all pupils with a broad and balanced education relevant to their current and future needs.

The National Curriculum core and foundation subjects at Key Stage 3 taught at Norden are: English, mathematics, science, technology, history, geography, art, music, French or Spanish, and physical education. Religious education is also taught to pupils at Key Stage 3 and together with our PSHE (personal, social and health education) programme, provides social, moral, careers, citizenship, health and sex education appropriate to the age of the pupil. Throughout Key Stage 3 pupils are in mixed ability groups for most subjects but are placed in ability groups in English and mathematics.

At Key Stage 4 all pupils study the following core subjects: English language, English literature, mathematics, science (double award), physical education, religious education, PSHE (including citizenship) and ICT (information & communications technology). In addition, pupils follow a course of study in three optional subjects from the following: art, child development, geography, history, music, religious education, French or Spanish, food technology, graphic products, resistant materials and textiles. All courses at Key Stage 4 are studied to GCSE or the equivalent level, with the exception of RE. A range of vocational courses at a local college is also available and provision is regularly reviewed within the curriculum to ensure that the needs of all pupils are being met.
