What says..

A more sensible and earnest cohort you’d be hard pushed to find. Thinking skills – pioneered by the whole school from nursery through to year 13 – taken very seriously by all with pupils able to explain the purpose of De Bono thinking hats with enthusiasm and clarity. Despite parents admitting that ‘the academic is the most important thing,’ school works hard to ensure balance with a dazzling array of extracurricular clubs which take place either at lunch time or after school.

Thank the school

Parents and pupils often have cause to acknowledge the help and support they have received from their schools, for example in helping in the choice of further education or careers. "Say thank you" allows you to send a quick note of appreciation to the school in general or to an individual teacher.

This is a thank you to your school, teacher or careers adviser who helped you to get where you are now.

Please fill in the fields below, which we will transform into a letter of thanks from you to them.

What The Good Schools Guide says

Head of the junior school

Since 2015, Mrs Zara Hubble (very youthful looking 40s), educated at Westonbirt School and City of London Girls, after which she took a Montessori nursery teaching course then a BEd specialising in KS2 at Southbank University. Cut teeth at St Hilda’s in Bushey before joining Heathfield, where she taught year 6 and ultimately became head of year 7. Moved to Northwood as head as part of merger with Heathfield in 2014. Likeable, calm and poised, with two daughters at university. Keen skier and book lover.


Oversubscribed for entry at 3+ and 4+ with around three applicants for every place. Gently selective with nursery and reception places offered after observation in play. Head meets all parents: ‘we’re looking for children who are ready for school,’ she says. Up to 10 new places...
