North London Grammar School is a brand new school. But at the same time, we are not new to education. NLGS is the next step on a journey we started 10 years ago, trying to bring the best value-for-money education to North London.
In 2006, our team opened Wisdom School in Tottenham, Haringey. Our goal was to create a low-cost independent school where we could provide high-class education that focused on DISTINCTION in literacy in a welcoming and diverse atmosphere. We were so successful in achieving our aims that we have been hugely oversubscribed.
In order to offer our model for educational excellence to more students, we have moved from our small but beautiful old building in Tottenham (6000 sq ft) to a brand new 50,000 sq ft site in Hendon with state-of-the-art design and technology. Our new premises support the growing needs of our students, allowing us to provide unparalleled education involving academic research and the holistic development of our students’ unique capabilities and talents.
We have also changed our name; a bold decision fuelled by a bold dream. Why North London Grammar School? Well, we’re proud of calling London our home, one of the great world cities, and especially proud of being at the centre of the cosmopolitan North London community. We call ourselves a grammar school to reflect the kind of school we want to be: focused on academic excellence, nurturing intelligence, and learning through self-discipline.
Wisdom School was our cradle, and we have used its experience to foster North London Grammar School. Our experienced Senior Leadership Team has turned NLGS into a school that is outstanding in all categories according to Ofsted.
We are excited about the next stage of our educational journey and would love for you to join us.
