North Bromsgrove High School is an exciting place to work and learn, and was recently judged Good across every area by Ofsted (January 2023) in which 'Leaders and staff work tirelessly to realise their vision of an inclusive community school. All are reaping the rewards of their collective endeavour. Staff feel supported by leaders and know leaders value their efforts. Leaders’ mantra of the ‘North family’ is evident in many facets of school across all year groups’. As a consequence of our success and reputation within the community, our numbers have increased in year 9 and Year 13 and we are now oversubscribed. North is an exciting, vibrant and friendly school, enjoying enviable facilities. Our vision is to enable our students to become confident, ambitious and successful in their chosen fields, by reinforcing our CARE values: Community, Aspiration, Respect and Endeavour. Ofsted (January 2023) indentified ‘Leaders, staff, pupils and students have worked together to make North Bromsgrove High School a better place to work and learn. They have been successful. The school’s ‘CARE’ values of ‘community, aspiration, respect and endeavor’ have been at the heart of their work’. We treat every child as an individual, prioritising academic excellence through reflection and focus on continual improvement across all areas of the school. North also benefits from its location: it is just south of Birmingham and attracts many staff from that area via a short commute; it is also between the M5 and M42 hence providing ease of access for staff travel.
