School Aims 

Northgate High School aims to be an excellent school where pupils enjoy learning, achieve highly and are productive, responsible and compassionate members of society.

We aim to produce an environment that encourages each pupil to develop qualities of self-discipline, organisation, motivation and the enjoyment of working hard which makes them confident and competent members of society.

We will continue to develop the positive ethos and learning culture throughout the school community with a commitment to continual improvement and meeting the very highest expectations.

We will continue to encourage a strong and effective partnership with parents and the local community.

We will continue to develop the literacy, creativity and communication skills so necessary for pupils to access the curriculum and take a full part in society.

We will take every opportunity to reward pupils and enhance their self-esteem whilst supporting one another in demanding the highest academic and social standards.

We will offer a broad and balanced curriculum which evolves to reflect the needs of pupils and the demands of modern society.
