On Tuesday night, Mr Fear attended the Independent School of the Year (ISOTY) Awards in Knightsbridge, London, where Nottingham High School was awarded the Co-educational Independent School of the Year award. We were honoured to receive this award based on our ambitious Diversity and Inclusion project, our student and staff led initiatives such as the PLUS group, but most of all our students, who take every opportunity to challenge gender misconceptions and build lifelong social and professional relationships with each other, regardless of gender. As a school, we have been co-educational for seven years. We are immensely proud to have been named the best school in this category so early on in our co-educational journey, but promise to not stop here, and to keep striving for excellence in everything we do.



Mr Fear said: ‘We were thrilled to be named as the Co-Educational Independent School of the Year. We became co-educational just seven years ago so to go from those first small steps to win this national award in such a short period of time is fantastic. This award recognises the strength of our whole school community and recognises the outstanding experience that our children receive at all times. The judges also paid tribute to all the work we have done recently with respect to diversity and inclusion. Our staff, students and the wider school family can all take great pride in this national recognition.’

At Nottingham High School we strive to provide a rich, stimulating and balanced school life that builds independence, confidence and resilience through collaboration, cooperation and healthy competition. The future is bright for our students and we are immensely proud of them. We are so honoured to be recognised in this way and want to extend our thanks to all in our school community. Together we are #somuchmore.
