What The Good Schools Guide says..
A new member of staff spoke of 'the great, supportive team' who had helped her through her first weeks, and as we savoured our lamb orzos, we found ourselves sitting with a year 4 boy. We asked him what his teachers were like. 'Kind and funny,' he replied. 'How?” we questioned. He munched away. 'Well, like at assembly Mr. Earnshaw told us how he became bald. It was because he tore his hair out to give it to a rhino who needed to grow a longer horn'.

What The Good Schools Guide says
Since 2013, Andrew Earnshaw, an effervescent mid 40s. Educated at Bacup and Rawtenstall Grammar School and Lancaster University. Has worked in both the state and independent sectors and also at The British School in Saudi Arabia. A deputy head at Beeston Rylands School before becoming headmaster of Nottingham High Junior School at the age of 34. Resembles an Anglicised version of Pep Guardiola and, like the Manchester City supremo, his organisation is at the top of the Premier League. A MAMIL (middle-aged man in lycra) who recently sizzled through a coast-to-coast ride, zooming through its 120 miles in eight hours. Humorous, perceptive, self-deprecating and with not a hint of the arrogance that some heads display, his popularity within the school with children, staff and parents is obvious. Like Guardiola he has invested his resources...
Special Education Needs
As an academically selective school, all children (including our 3+ Kindergarten pupils) must pass an entry assessment to join one of our classes from 4+ upwards. Following this, provision for any child with additional needs will be made in the most appropriate way, within the constraints of available resources. As a school we have experience of supporting pupils with the additional needs, but we do not have specialist provision for these.
