Partnership and Outreach
At Nottingham High School we offer a variety of events, training and experiences for pupils and teachers from local state schools.
Each year we host over 2,000 pupils and 220 teachers from around 75 different state schools for a variety of events and activities, sharing our resources and expertise with the local community. From science days to author visits and university advice sessions to sports festivals, our events cover a wide spectrum of skills and interests for children and teachers alike.
By working in partnership with other schools in the area we are able to see the genuine positive impact for all involved. Visitors are able to enjoy the valuable free sessions lead by our passionate school community, and our own students are able to gain valuable skills and insights by getting involved. With plans in place for the next academic year and beyond, we look forward to a vibrant programme of partnership and outreach opportunities where we will work with large numbers of primary and secondary schools.
“Thank you so much for putting on these events – they are inspiring and give the children a huge opportunity that they otherwise wouldn’t have”
Feedback from a Primary School class teacher
Nottingham High School holds the Lord-Lieutenant’s Award for Promoting Voluntary Service for our work with the local community.
“Students all stressed how much enjoyment and self-satisfaction they get out of these voluntary activities. They learn new skills and work with people from a wide range of backgrounds and experiences. As one student put it, ‘it is very rewarding being able to put something back into society’.” – Section from the rewarding report.
Each year we are involved in a wide range of community projects, from our annual Christmas dinner for senior citizens to our Mini-Olympics competition for children. In the 2018-19 year we collected enough dried and tinned goods to create emergency food parcels for the Arches Project for 125 people, as well as collecting over 200 Easter eggs and bags of Christmas presents for our local NSPCC Centre. Many of our clubs encourage and support volunteering activity, and our Duke of Edinburgh students alone racked up over 2,500 hours of community volunteering last year. Community engagement is very much embedded in the culture of Nottingham High School, and we are incredibly proud of our staff and students for their dedication in this area.
