Our Values

Nothing that happens at NTS does so by accident. The impeccable behaviour of our pupils (Ofsted’s phrasing, not mine), their politeness and good manners, their achievement (academic and extra-curricular) are all down to sheer hard work — theirs and ours. The standards we have fought hard to maintain have been established over many years by the commitment of a dedicated team of professionals.

Our eager children have a real thirst for learning and our excellent staff team are committed and dedicated in ensuring that each and every child achieves. We have high standards and expect the best.

The local context (a small industrial town in rural northern Cumbria) is, perhaps, not one you might associate with academic excellence and yet we were the first secondary school in the county to have been judged “outstanding” by Ofsted under their new framework.

You will probably want to see for yourself what we have to offer and, to this end, I would be delighted to show you around.
