Northicote is a Good School with Outstanding Features.
Leadership and management are good.
It is our aim that your child can learn successfully and acquire all the skills necessary to succeed in the 21st century. We want your child to achieve their full potential and take their place with confidence as caring and highly skilled individuals within the community. We want this to happen in the secure, positive, caring environment that has always characterised The Northicote School. This is important because it is only when children feel comfortable and secure that they can do their best. At The Northicote School we believe that parents, teachers and pupils must work together to see that this happens.
A Message From The Headteacher
I hope you will excuse a little selfindulgence but it is wonderful for me to be in a position to write this introduction. Those of you who already know me, as parents and past students, will also know how passionate I am about the Northicote School.
It would take far too long to list the improvements that have enabled the massive progress the school has made over the past 15 years.
My targets are quite clear:
To maintain the current pace of progress
To ensure the best education and progression routes for all students
To regard every person as an individual
To extend the opportunities which currently exist for your children, to you and your community
A prospectus is not always the best way of helping you make critical decisions about your children's future. For this reason, I would openly invite anybody to come and visit the school at any time so that you can feel the environment we have created. Ofsted have confirmed our view that it is a safe and caring environment which supports success for all students. I look forward to meeting with you.
