Why Choose Norwood?
Student Enrichment Programme
As part of our Student Enrichment Programme you will be able to take part in a variety of activities and learn new skills. There are places to visit, events to take part in and sporting teams to represent. We have established links with a number of exciting clubs and arts organisations for example the Challenge Network and Frontier.
Sixth Form Common Room and Study Zone
The Learning Resources Centre will continue to provide you with a wide range of information and computing services to help maximise your learning. The Study Zone provides access to a silent working environment. The common room will be a place of your own to meet, have tutorials, study or just relax. It will have full access to your own ICT facilities, workstations, 6th Form notice board, careers library and lockers.
The Norwood Art Gallery and Theatre
The Norwood Art Gallery hosts exhibitions of contemporary art, design and crafts. You will have the chance to exhibit your work at the Gallery along with staff and international artists. Many of the exhibitions will open to the public. The Theatre will play host to many Sixth Form events, showcases and productions.
We recognise how valuable trips and residential are as part of your learning programme. Some are very specific to the course you are studying whilst others support the general curriculum or are recreational. We believe that if you take part in and enjoy life as a 6th former you will be more successful. Why not join a cultural trip to Amsterdam or a fashion trip to Milan or Paris or a Spanish trip to Barcelona or Bilbao?
Senior Student Leadership
The Senior Student Leadership Team are expected to play an active role within the school. They will work with the Senior Yr 11 Prefects and Leadership Team to play a key role in developing the student voice within Norwood.
We aim to encourage in students a sense of personal responsibility within the school and the wider community. You will be expected to act as role models and ambassadors for the Norwood School and to follow established codes of conduct and have a very good attendance and punctuality record.
You will be able to participate in a variety of exciting leisure activities including, netball, football, gymnastics, cricket, baseball, aerobics, swimming, yoga, pilates, martial arts, self defence and trampolining.
As a Norwood School Sixth Former you will have the opportunity to take part in an exciting work experience programme. Your placements will relate specifically to your individual interests.
