Good Schools Guide 2023
We are delighted to announce that NCS's new Good Schools Guide review has been released:
Highlights from the review include:
A world-class school due to the quality of its teaching, music and creative programmes – all of which it achieves with curious, eager-to-learn boys … We watched top-drawer teachers at work, immediately alert to any inattentive pupils while keeping everyone perfectly on task … Parents eulogise about them … [Music] is really superb … Other schools flock here to learn from NCS … School’s moto - ‘manners makyth man’ (from William Wykeham, the founder) - was raised repeatedly by parents for being ‘not just a label but a guiding principle’ … Strong pastorally too - several parents praised the school’s immediate and in-depth response when issues had arisen … ‘Standards are very high, but they wouldn’t make anyone unwelcome,’ said one parent. ‘It’s a great place for a curious and sparky boy. We have been so lucky to be here.’ … A school that knows what makes boys tick and gives them, as one parent put it, an ‘academically rigorous and musically brilliant foundation to go off and do other things’.
