Norlington School and 6th Form is a small 11-16 boy’s school with a mixed 6th form school. We are one of the highest performing schools in the country and have been recognised by the Minister for State Schools on three separate occasions for student achievement. The school is oversubscribed and is currently going through a programme of development and expansion with new classrooms, sports facilities and library being added.

In  September 2018 Norlington was judged to be a 'good school' by Ofsted;

'The behaviour of pupils around the school is calm and orderly. The pupils enjoy being part of the school community'

'The progress of all groups of pupils in key stage 4, including the most able, is strong'

'Staff enjoy being part of the school with its distinctive family ethos'

The school has an excellent CPD programme and is committed to developing all staff, as we continue our journey to becoming an ‘Outstanding’ school. This includes three staff training afternoons, two department meetings and one twilight training session every 6 weeks. Lessons finish for students at 1:30pm on a Friday.
