The current school roll is 1060; this is expected to increase significantly over the next few years. Expansion work to create more classrooms and improved facilities is currently underway. Strong links have been developed with the local community and a broad range of extra curricular activities are on offer.  The ethos of the school is underpinned by the NBHS values of curiosity, kindness, diligence and belonging.  We aspire to excellence in learning and teaching and our school motto “Aim Higher” speaks to this ambition.
