About The North School

We are proud that The North School is a happy and improving school where students and teachers enjoy learning together. An experienced team of colleagues provide all students with the best possible opportunities, both inside and outside of the classroom. Our teachers encourage all students to develop their resilience and independence.

Our students are expected to treat each other and staff with care, courtesy and consideration. They are taught to always try their very best at whatever they do and to value the progress they make as individuals. We value a community approach to education to ensure that there is a broad range of expertise within the school. This enables our students to be supported in all areas, so that they may strive to reach their full potential in school and in their future lives.

At The North School we recognise that the students are at the centre of the learning experience and that they all come with different needs and abilities, not to mention interests and strengths. Therefore, we continually review the curriculum diet available to ensure that it best reflects the national picture and the needs of the students. This enables us to make the learning experience as skills-based as possible with a broad range of subjects and an emphasis on personal achievement.

Working in partnership with parents and the local community is important to us. Collaboration with parents to ensure that every student in our care reaches their full potential is highly valued. We encourage all parents to get involved in the life of the school. The well-established Parents' Forum offers an excellent opportunity to influence the developments at The North School.

Our classroom practice and academic achievement is supported by a wide range of facilities that include a highly successful Basketball Academy, excellent sports facilities and clubs, a climbing wall and even a full working farm, with a very committed Young Farmers' Club, that has achieved great success at agricultural shows through Kent and Sussex. All these elements contribute towards our safe, positive and varied learning environment that enables our students to achieve their full potential and enjoy their time with us.
