Values and vision

The Netherhall School and Sixth Form Centre is passionate about revealing the strengths of each pupils and working in a way that benefits each student as an individual. The acronym PRIDE represents the school, standing for: Personal excellence; Respect and friendship; Inspiration; Determination and courage; and Equality.


“In 2015, the proportion of pupils achieving five or more A* to C grades at GCSE including English and mathematics increased on the previous year and was well above the national average. Disadvantaged pupils achieved particularly well based on the same measure and attained significantly higher than similar pupils nationally. The school has also closed the gap in attainment between disadvantages pupils in the school and other pupils nationally to 7%, compared to 28% in the previous year. These gains in attainment were underpinned by pupils’ progress accelerating rapidly in both English and mathematics.”
