Norlington School and 6th Form

Principal's Welcome

I am very proud to welcome you to Norlington School and 6th Form. I am conscious that choosing the right school for your son is not easy. Hence, by reading this prospectus and attending events such as our Open Evening, you will see Norlington as the school of choice for your son.

As an 11-16 boys school, with a mixed academically focused 6th form, Norlington has exceptionally high standards for every individual. We believe every student is capable of accomplishing remarkable things and we work intensely to ensure that each student have every opportunity to develop as leaders and gentlemen. We endeavour to support your son to realise and exceed his potential by providing an environment where he feels challenged to achieve, yet safe and supported as a member of the Norlington Family.

The school’s motto ‘Wisdom is Strength’ is central to our commitment to you and more importantly, your son throughout his time here. As he matures into a young man, one who is ready to embark various challenges and recognise the opportunities of the 21st Century, we strive to develop the skills, knowledge and values that will allow him to choose the right path to take throughout his life.

In September 2013 the school was judged as a ‘Good’ School by Ofsted.

Key Ofsted Statements:

  • Students make excellent progress in Mathematics and Science and good progress in English.
  • Students behave well in lessons and around the school. They enjoy coming to school.
  • Leaders have relentless drive for continuous improvement.
  • The governing body is dedicated to the school and has focused on improving the curriculum so that it is more challenging.
