Performing and Visual Arts College

Creating Success Together

Welcome to the Norwood School

Welcome to our school.

 

We are immensely proud to have been part of Norwood School’s recent journey and transformation. We have overseen significant change and are even more proud and excited to be given the opportunity to shape the school’s future in our role as interim headteachers.

 

Norwood’s successes are demonstrated in our students outstanding achievements. We are a child centred community and place at its heart positive relationships, exciting opportunities and an engaging curriculum.

 

We are extremely ambitious for our students. Norwood consistently achieves excellent academic outcomes regardless of student starting points. Our thoughtful, well planned and personalised approach to learning and its focus on the individual, enables our school to be a happy, vibrant and stimulating environment for students and staff. We are relentlessly optimistic and positive and never has that been more important than in current times.

 

We dedicate ourselves to making learning exciting, inspiring and engaging. Our curriculum is broad and bespoke with a commitment to diversity and personalisation. We have high academic expectations and ambitions for our young people and also recognise the importance of an extracurricular offer that gives opportunities to experiment, try new things and develop themselves beyond the classroom.

 

Our specialism in performing and visual arts enhances our teaching and curriculum. It enables students to develop their unique talents and harness their creativity in whatever field this may be. We develop the whole child, ensuring that when they move on to the next stage of their education they will do so as inquisitive, thoughtful, well-rounded individuals ready for all the world has to offer.

 

Visitors to our school frequently comment on its warmth, vibrancy and sense of community. We are proud to be a school of choice in our local community and value the diverse experiences of those within it. We welcome you to our school and hope that you get to experience in person what a great place it is to be part of.

 

Interim Headteachers Richard Cole and Niki Clemenger
