A SCHOOL was given one of the highest grades possible and a glowing report.

Norfolk House School, in Muswell Hill, was praised in an Independent Schools Inspectorate (ISI) inspection in June.

Comments in the report included high praise phrases ‘the quality of the pupils’ academic and other achievements is excellent’ and ‘the quality of the pupils’ personal development is excellent’.

Pupils ‘of all ages demonstrate excellent knowledge, skills and understanding across all areas of the curriculum’, are ‘confident and self-reliant in all areas of school life’ and ‘are exceptionally well prepared for the next stage of their education.’

Children were also congratulated for working collaboratively at problem solving, having exceptional ICT skills and positive attitudes to learning.

Headteacher, Paul Jowett, was delighted with the results of the recent inspection.

He, said: “It is a true testament to the commitment and enthusiasm of all our staff and pupils.

“We are committed to working in partnership with parents to create a nurturing and inspiring learning environment to enable every child to achieve their potential, and I am delighted that this is reflected in the inspector’s comments.”

Norfolk House School has 230 pupils aged between two and 11 years, and further information is available at www.norfolkhouseschool.org.uk
