Learning at Norland

Academic Norland

All the teachers are incredibly passionate about their subjects. They spread their energy and enthusiasm to us all. 

Jiaqi, Year 6

The curriculum at Norland Place aims to provide pupils with a stimulating and broad education.

Whilst emphasis is placed upon the core subjects of Maths, English and Science pupils receive specialist lessons in an array of subjects every day from Reception through to Year 6. 

Our structured approach to learning means that the most able are stretched whilst individual support is available for those who need extra attention.

Exams have been tough; a challenge, but this has built me up and I know I’m going to a great school that’s right for me.
