The Norwood School


Norwood School are very proud to have been awarded the Quality in Careers Standard Stage 3. This is recognition that we provide a high standard of careers education, information, advice and guidance provision.

Joanne Smith, from CSW commented – ‘You have clearly achieved so much recently and, not only is it a pleasure to see your efforts rewarded with successful completion of Stage 3, but also to know that external assessors leave with such a positive impression of the school in its entirety.’

Tina Beard, our assessor, said, ‘I admire how much you and the entire team do and manage to squeeze into each and every week! I was very impressed by all I saw and heard at The Norwood School.’

Please see the full report below, that highlights our many strengths but also the areas that we are keen to improve upon to make the provision even better for every single Norwood student.  


Please see our Careers Strategy and Policy below.

We are fortunate to have Alix Boyle, our Independent Careers Advisor, in school each week. She is based in S17 on the top corridor. Students are issued with an appointment card on the day of their scheduled meeting to excuse them out of class. As well as group workshops, assemblies and small group meetings, all students in Yr 10, 11 and Sixth Form will receive a one to one interview at some point throughout the year. If you feel that you would like to see Alix again for a follow up meeting or are simply seeking more advice, then please make an appointment to see her through your head of year or Miss Nicholas.
