School size
920 pupils enrolled
Age range
11 to 16

The school opened in 2011 and has more than doubled in size. We currently have 845 students on role including an oversubscribed intake of over 210 in Year 7. Judged as ‘good’ during the most recent Ofsted inspection and with a level of pastoral care recognised to be excellent, there is a confidence in the effectiveness of approach and the impact made across all areas. A values focused ethos has been firmly established; this is reflected in the extremely strong relationships that are evident across the school.

As Headteacher since May 2019, I am in the privileged position of leading the school in its quest to provide a safe and happy environment in which our students thrive. Recruiting staff with the potential to make a significant contribution to this is crucial. You will play an important role in developing and delivering excellent standards of teaching and learning across our school.

You will undoubtedly conduct research on our school and will see that the historic KS4 outcomes are well below aspirations; we were confident of an improvement in the most recent set of results but, as you will be aware, circumstances beyond our control mean that these are not published as key performance indicators. I’m pleased to confirm that last year's Year 11 students gained access to their desired post-16 destinations with 98.6% successfully enrolled in education or training which includes a significantly higher percentage accessing 'A' Levels. We are at an extremely exciting phase of our development with a largely new senior leadership team and strong middle leadership which includes staff who are new to post. Alongside a broad and balanced taught curriculum, we are in the process of implementing a bespoke leadership and achievement programme for each of our year groups; learning at NHTS is not just about aspiring to academic excellence, it is focused on developing a wider provision that meets our long term mission in creating engaged, critical and resilient learners equipped to become the people who define, shape and transform society.
