Year 7 School

In order to accommodate its growing numbers of students and ensure that Northfield School continues to cater for the needs of its young people a new Year 7 School has been built on site.

Work began on the foundations in October 2017 and since then the building has really started to take shape, allowing our vision to develop into a reality. Year 6 pupils choosing to join Northfield School in September 2018 are the first students to see the benefits of being taught in a small school within a large school supported by dedicated staff and state-of-the-art facilities. The new build will help ensure a smooth transition from Y6 to 7 by eradicating the anxieties many pupils feel when leaving their relatively small primary schools to join a large secondary school.

The contemporary architecture and style of the building allows for a more creative and flexible approach to curriculum design and work is underway to ensure that the curriculum is planned to allow pupils to develop the skills necessary to progress in a modern and rapidly changing world.
