School Description

North London Grammar School is an independent co-educational day school for pupils aged from 11 to 18. The school opened in 2006 with provision for 100 students. The school is located in Hendon, in the London Borough of Barnet. There have been substantial changes since the previous Ofsted inspection. The new headteacher took up his post in November 2014. There have been many other changes to leadership, staffing and governors. The school changed its name from Wisdom School to North London Grammar School. Its registered age range was extended from 11 to 16 to 11 to 18. From September 2015, the school took in boarders. The boarding provision is subject to a separate inspection. Two years ago the school changed its entry criteria from mixed ability to selective. This was the school’s third standard inspection. The previous two were in February 2008 and November 2013. In October 2016, the school had a social care inspection of its boarding provision. Inspectors judged that the overall experiences and progress of children and young people were good. The school does not use any alternative provision. The school’s motto is ‘bonitas, scientia, disciplina’ (Latin for ‘goodness, knowledge, and instruction’).

“North London Grammar School. Y7 Parent Feedback”
"> My son is currently a year 7 student. Whilst the school has much to prove as it is in it's infancy of turning into a new reformed private/grammar school, I have no qualms in saying: The school has undertaken excellent initiatives to aid learning. Interactive and comprehensive study guides. They have already started to understand those children that are talented /gifted and who excel in their work. They provide a broad spectrum of activities, which includes an enrichment programme built into the school timetable. The teachers so far have been on point and, in particular reference to my child, he has adapted well and learnt at a greater pace then I was expecting. The day is full and he struggles in the beginning to adapt to the volume of work (from state school to this). He has embraced it and is doing very well. The school send text messages if your child has excelled in a subject. They have a comprehensive website for parents, who can leave feedback and see each study plan and term curriculum. Currently there are few form groups. 1 in each year, so the size of each class is excellent. 18 in Y7. This allows each child to learn and have the attention they deserve.The school has a long way to go, but I feel confident in it's growth and expectations. Most of all. My child is very happy there.
