THE CURRICULUM: Boys thrive in our busy yet friendly school which provides outstanding teaching that stimulates, stretches, nurtures and develops individual strengths to prepare boys for entry to top secondary schools at 11 and 13 - both in and out of London.

GAMES & THE ARTS: Our sports team includes FA, RFU, and ECB qualified staff with a wealth of experience of playing sport to a high level who aim to inspire boys to enjoy and work hard in all sports, offering a high quality and wide varied sporting programme. All boys play matches in the major sports and teams are very competitive even against much bigger schools. A wide-ranging clubs programme includes karate, coding and spy-club. Thriving and vibrant music, drama and art departments with ambitious projects, multiple ensembles and exciting performances.

PASTORAL CARE: Our tutor system ensures that each boy has someone looking out for him over and above the care he receives from every staff member. The small and friendly community enables staff and boys to get to know each other well. Parent partnership is actively encouraged, and the Headmaster's door is always open.

ENTRANCE & EXIT: Automatic entry for boys from Broomwood Hall Lower School if it's the right school for them. Around 6-10 places a year for external candidate at 8 and some at 11 Exit to a broad mix of London day and out of town boarding at 11 & 13 including Bradfield, Dulwich, Harrow, Tonbridge, Marlborough, Wellington, Epsom, Emanuel, Trinity, Whitgift, Charterhouse, Sherborne, Cranleigh and Eton. Strong record in scholarships in all areas including academic, music, DT, drama and sport.

HEAD TEACHER'S PHILOSOPHY: 'The whole child is the whole point': academic rigour, a focus on traditional manners, outstanding extra-curricular opportunities, holistic pastoral care and most importantly, running a school that allows the boys to be happy so that they fulfil their academic potential.

OUTSTANDING CHARACTERISTICS: Northcote Lodge really understands how to get the very best out of boys, giving them an outstanding all-round education in a stimulating yet nurturing learning environment and preparing them for exciting futures.

In September 2021 Northwood Schools joined the wider Dukes Education family. Together we're extraordinary.
