Open Events


Thank you for visiting our open events page - we've included some key information about Noadswood and would very much welcome you in joining us for our Open Evening and one of our Open Mornings.

What makes Noadswood terrific?

Is it:

  • High quality specialist teachers in specialist facilities, across a rich and varied curriculum?
  • Our House System, that celebrates, collaborates and competes in the spirit of excellence for all?
  • Our Year Group system, enabling your child to have a Year Leader, Assistant Year Leader and Tutor as their ‘go to’ people for support throughout their journey with us?
  • Our drive for the best possible progress for all through research based teaching and learning?
  • The way we listen to our students’ ideas for their wellbeing and their community, and bring them all to life?
  • Strong academic successes in the last three years across measures, with a super record in Dance, Performing Arts, Poetry, Sport, History, Science and Mathematics. You can find out more about our attainment via:

It's because of ALL of the above but overarching all of this, it's because we are a warm, welcoming school. The Headteacher and the entire staff team are passionate about educational excellence and about sustaining an honest, kind, inclusive community - we are strongly united on our very best days, at challenging times and at all points in between.

We genuinely believe that we are all members of the Noadswood family, committed to each other’s success and wellbeing, and we have modelled this throughout Covid’s challenges and we always will.

We pledge to guarantee all our parents and young people that very special blend of 'terrific' when they choose Noadswood School. Come and visit us to experience this for yourselves.
