Headteacher's Welcome

I am extremely proud to introduce Nunnery Wood High School to you. We are a thriving educational community which buzzes with academic, sporting and artistic activity. As such, this website can only offer you a glimpse of what our happy students experience on a daily basis.

Our excellent examination results arise from Stephen Powella calm, friendly environment and first class teaching. We know and care about each student individually. In our most recent survey, 99% of our parents would recommend Nunnery Wood to other parents and 99% say their child feels happy and safe. Our students go on to fulfil their potential, whether that is university, Oxbridge or a vocational profession.

At Nunnery Wood, we share an irresistible belief that each child will succeed. I hope that this site encourages you to join us in making this happen.

Mr Stephen Powell

Head Teacher
