Headteachers Welcome

Welcome to Northgate High School. We hope that parents and prospective pupils will find our school a welcoming environment.

We appreciate that selecting the right educational environment for your child is an all-important foundation for life-long success. Our school is founded on a commitment to enable all learners to fulfil their potential and we constantly seek to raise student aspirations and achievement.

We take seriously our obligation to prepare young people to take their place in an evolving world where not only results, but also character and personal integrity matter. Our aim is to stimulate in our students a love of learning and a thirst for achievement in all its forms.

Our school has great pride in its students and their many achievements within our school and the surrounding community. We are totally committed to providing an environment that is stimulating, supportive and academically stretching; which also develops the whole person through a wide range of opportunities and activities.

At Northgate High School we believe in supporting the student’s social and emotional development. We are proud of the harmonious relationships and mutual respect between students and staff. Our comprehensive transition and induction programmes enable students to settle in quickly and help them to feel safe and secure.

We look forward to working with you and your child. We also welcome any questions and visits to see our school in action.
