Welcome from our Headmaster
Here at Nottingham High School we have a well-deserved national reputation both for our academic success and for the high standards achieved in the wide range of activities we offer.
By championing the individual and encouraging intellectual curiosity, we ensure that all pupils not only achieve outstanding examination results but leave the School as well-rounded, confident young people, ready to play their part in tomorrow’s society.
I very much hope that I will have the pleasure of welcoming you and your family to the School. We believe that a visit is the best way to discover what life here is really like, and there are a variety of opportunities to come and see us for yourself.
