At North Bridge House Senior School, we passionately believe in celebrating every child as an individual. From ages 11 to 16, we develop enquiring minds and inspire a life-long love of learning from within a special family atmosphere.

New to post in September 2017, I am proud to have joined such a wonderful school with a strong sense of community. We challenge pupils on a daily basis and help each child to exceed their academic potential, whilst growing their talents in a wide range of extra-curricular and enrichment activities. North Bridge House encourages pupils to be confident, motivated and proud of their achievements, succeeding in every area of their education.

Here at North Bridge House I embark on my 21st year of teaching, after having been fortunate enough to work at three excellent independent schools: Colfe’s School, Shiplake College and Long Close School, where I took up my first Headship and improved academic results to record levels year on year.

From within the classroom to leading the School, I am a Head Teacher who passionately believes in the power of happy children. Pupils learn most effectively when they are happy, and with our focus firmly on the whole child, their whole environment, and their well-being, I truly believe we make a big difference to their outcomes.

What makes NBH Senior so special is its dedicated team of subject-specialist teachers, who each contribute to our aspirational ethos and create enjoyment around their subject.

Every pupil benefits from the widest range of subject experience: the core academic subjects are complemented by Latin, Drama, Textiles, Ceramics, Food Technology, Resistant Materials and a choice of three Modern Foreign Languages. Our pupils are therefore able to make the most informed and personalised choices when they come to select their GCSE options at Key Stage 4.

I very much look forward to welcoming you to one of our open events, where you will find a very happy, industrious and purposeful place of learning.

To help every child fulfill their potential through dedicated and inspirational teaching

To educate the whole child by offering a wide variety of academic, sporting and extra-curricular activities


Our Ethos

We have always believed in the importance of celebrating the individual and, as such, have built our long-standing success on maintaining an environment in which our pupils are happy, confident and proud of their achievements.

We believe in the importance of educating the whole child so that his or her true potential can be fulfilled. With academic work and self-discipline at the centre of school life, we focus on providing a breadth of learning experience that takes pupils much further than the curriculum itself.  Through a wide range of academic and extra-curricular learning experiences, we aim to develop self-awareness and the acquisition of skills needed for adult life. Our continuing objective is an education that prepares our young adults for the future.
