Mr Stephen Powell's message

Head Teacher Mr Stephen Powell: Head Teacher

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 a 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.
