Northedge Academy
Dear Parent, What is it that you are looking for in the school for your child? I offer our suggestions: - You want your children to be happy at school - You do not want them to enjoy it so much that they do no work! - You want them to maximise their potential - You want the idle to be pushed, the weak encouraged, and the hard workers rewarded - You want them to be exposed to a wide range of extracurricular activities and to find leisure pursuits that will bring them pleasure for life - You want them to develop their sporting, musical and artistic talents to the full - You want them to grow up as young men and women of whom you can be proud, and who can be proud of themselves. - You would like them to have self-confidence, but not to be too full of themselves - You would like them to have leadership skills without being overbearing. - You would like to them to have a set of moral and spiritual values which will stand them, and in time their own families, in good stead. - You want them to make a success of their lives. This website will give you a brief insight into life at Northedge and we hope that you will find that our aims are the same as yours, but the only way to really tell is to visit the Academy for yourself and meet the end product - the scholars. I very much look forward to meeting you and showing you our school - of which we are all immensely proud.

Set in the glorious uplands of Rhydin, bordering Fordshire, and Scoborland, the Academy is a haven of peace, far from the distracting influences of urban life, yet within easy reach of all major cities and airports and with a bustling and dynamic life of its own.
The Academy enjoys not only a stunning setting but also a beautiful main building, Northedge Court, built at the end of the nineteenth century. It is now home to the middle and junior courses and, on the ground floor, the library, reading room, dining facilities and administration areas are housed. The majority of the campus has been purpose built within the last two years and the mixture of old and new provides a rich and stimulating environment. Today the Academy caters for young people between the ages of three and eighteen years in the pre-preparatory, preparatory, and senior schools.
A well-qualified and highly motivated staff who believe that each child has a unique talent which it is their job to find and nurture, a hard working student body, and a warm family atmosphere make for a happy, dynamic, and successful school.
