In addition to our subject-based curriculum, our character education has been introduced throughout our all-through school as its DNA from reception through to Year 13. This character curriculum helps to prepare children for future learning and their adult lives. Focusing on the characteristics of Responsibility, Collaboration, Respect, Care, Excellence and Aspiration, our DNA of NIA complements our subject curriculum and our House system.

As a school, we are still growing. Therefore, we have a range of exciting opportunities for a September start. Please do watch the video of our school poem 'What We Are Made Of' to get to know us better. https://youtu.be/X8HFh1OarE4
