Northwood College is an independent day school in North West London for girls aged 3-18 years. It is an academic school with two very special features at its heart. Our unique 'Thinking Skills' programme enables girls to develop independent and creative thinking that takes them far beyond an exam curriculum. In addition, our unrivalled pastoral care rests on the premise that a happy girl will always achieve her best.
Excellence, courage and integrity: three fundamental qualities that underpin a Northwood College education. Through the dedicated support of teachers who are experts in their subjects, who hold very high academic expectations of their pupils and who care deeply about the well-being of each of our girls, Northwood College prides itself on being a nurturing environment which enables every girl to achieve her very best.
We believe education should be about developing a real thirst for learning. Our staff and pupils are ambitious and aspirational. Our ground-breaking and innovative Thinking Skills programme is part of our commitment to fostering success, endeavour, creativity, a spirit of enquiry and strength of mind. Girls are provided with a wealth of opportunities to discover their varied and unique talents, be they academic, sporting or creative. Our girls become self-sufficient learners – autonomous, inquisitive and brave. We encourage them to be emotionally resilient, to learn from success and challenge and to communicate with clarity and assurance.
Our aim is that every day at school is a fulfilling, enriching experience, within a happy, considerate community. Staff and girls are passionate about their work and about helping each other to become decent, kind human beings, with a sense of responsibility and service and a clear moral compass. Girls are well-prepared for the challenges of 21st century life. Northwood College commits itself to every girl to enable her to 'discover, learn and succeed.'
