About Northfield School and Sports College

Northfield School has been providing high quality education for the young people for over 45 years. With our latest transformation now complete, pupils have state of the art facilities to thrive in.

We are a values led school; our three core values being respect, honesty and resilience.  These core values, along with staff having the highest expectations of every student underpin our desire to ensure that we are able to inspire confident learners, who will leave Northfield with a really good level of knowledge, skills and experience to thrive in an ever- changing world.

Northfield is a popular school and to cater for the significant demand, a 330 place state-of-the art, multi-million pound Year 7 School was built on site and opened in September 2018.

In January 2020, the school was judged as continuing to be a good school. The report acknowledges the hard work of the headteacher, staff and governors in bringing about positive changes to the school in the last twelve months.  Ofsted highlights that low level disruption is rare and that pupils engage well in their work and lessons. Our recent report also notes that parental support for the school is strong.

The valued work of the school’s pastoral staff, as well as the wide range of extra-curricular activities offered by the school as part of its personal development programme are also highlighted in the report.

Our 2019 examination results continued to build upon our academic success with improvements in a number of key areas. It was particularly pleasing to see a good increase in the number of Grade 9’s achieved by our students.  This success builds upon our other achievements such as Arts Gold Mark (Exemplary) Award, Gold School Games Award, Duke of Edinburgh Award Flagship School and Holocaust Education Beacon School. Our SMSC programme is also a real strength.

Our recent Ofsted inspection also highlighted the fact that all staff enjoy working at Northfield and this is something that we’re very proud of. Staff well-being is a priority. As part of our recent inspection, 111 staff completed the Ofsted online survey and all 111 said that the school is well led and managed.

The school’s reputation for sporting success is well founded. Our girls have been national champions for table tennis a number of times, were badminton national finalists and the football team played in the national finals at Wembley in 2015.  In 2017, the girls went one place further and became national Futsal champions.  The school has also won the Teesside School Sports Awards for Girls and Team for the past two years.

Our students became national champions at Dragon Boat Racing in 2018. In 2016, School Sport magazine judged the school to be in the top 10 nationally for sporting achievement.
