A Word From the Directors

Being a parent is one of life’s greatest joys, but like anything worthwhile it is far from easy. Every day you have to make choices which shape your child’s future, and your choice of school is one of the most important and far-reaching. You are determined to secure the best start in life for your child, and providing them with a first-class education is a great step in that direction. But where do you go from there? Birmingham abounds with good independent schools. Why choose Norfolk House?

In a word, ethos. One could attempt to define that word by pointing to our reputation for academic excellence which spans more than seventy years; or to our excellent exam results; or to our small class sizes; or to our dedicated and professional staff; or to our work within the wider community. These things are of great importance and we are justly proud of them, but they do not really define our ethos because, in truth, they are the products of it. Our ethos comes from what we believe in - passionately: that each child is an individual to be nurtured; that a happy and caring environment is the bedrock of a child’s development; that good manners and respect for others are values which should never be compromised; that working hard and playing hard go hand-in-hand; that cultural and religious diversity is to be celebrated; and that education is an exciting, life-long process which starts with us here at Norfolk House.

The pages that follow will, I hope, give you a flavour of our ethos, but they can do no more than that. You are warmly invited to make an appointment to experience it for yourself.

We look forward to your visit.

Jonathan Challinor
Chairman of Directors
