Staff and Governance

Our dedicated staff are loved by the children and parents alike. We have a high staff/child ratio ensuring that the children’s academic and pastoral needs are well cared for.

Our goal is to teach to the highest standards the many subjects we offer so that children pass examinations successfully. We attach equal importance to inspiring your children with enthusiasm and a love of learning which will be an asset for life.

Northbourne Park is committed to safeguarding and promoting the welfare of children and all members of staff, teaching or non-teaching have undertaken an enhanced DBS check.
