There is a huge focus on extra-curricular activities that students can take part in, including Music, Journalism, Sports, Science, Chess and Food club.

The School has an extensive pupil catchment area and is the first choice for much of Nottinghamshire, Derbyshire, Lincolnshire and Leicestershire.

Our students come from a wide range of backgrounds and we are committed to maintaining a representative entry, supporting this with generous bursary and scholarship funds for Year 7.

Together, these mean that approximately one tenth of Senior School pupils receives some form of financial assistance.

Nottingham High School will also be holding their annual Open Day on Saturday the 24th of September 2022.

Open to all, the yearly event is a chance for families of all age groups to visit the school, sample lessons, meet our friendly teachers and try a sample of our award-winning school lunches. Pre-registration is required, simply fill out the enquiry form on our website.
