What Sets This School Apart
A Pioneering Heritage
Since 1850, NLCS (UK) has maintained its reputation for providing an outstanding education. Founded by Victorian pioneers of education, Frances Mary Buss, in her family home in North London, the original vision of the school was to give to girls the quality of education and the aspirations that, at the time, were only afforded to their brothers. The vision of the founder remains true to this day – it is a school which believes fundamentally in what students ‘can do’, in never placing ceilings on what they can achieve, never ‘labelling’ them, and never writing them off. North London Collegiate schools provide an ambitious academic education, led by highly qualified, knowledgeable teachers through engaging and inspiring lessons.
True Academic Excellence
The Sutton Trust has described NLCS (UK) as the most successful school in the United Kingdom in placing its students into the country’s most competitive universities. The 2022 average IB Diploma score of 40.7 places NLCS (UK) as among the best IB school in the UK for the thirteenth consecutive year, and among the very best IB schools in the world. Over a third of the students from the school have accepted places at Oxford, Cambridge and Ivy League Universities. NLCS Dubai secured an average score of 38.1 making it the highest performing school for the IB Diploma Programme in the Middle East for second year in a row.
To provide an ambitious education for the students, the school recruits professional teachers who are passionate about and are genuine experts in their subject. The school empowers teachers to inspire this passion and love for the subject in the students. Students are encouraged to explore beyond curriculum boundaries and discover their own passions.
Individual Pastoral Care
Each member of our teaching staff has a specific pastoral responsibility, ensuring that every student receives the individual support that they need in order to flourish. NLCS students exude a grounded self-confidence and a willingness to step outside of their comfort zone to try new things. The pastoral care is designed to help students overcome any difficulties, whether academic, social, or personal.
Extra-Curricular Activities Programme
All students will take part in an extensive range of extra-curricular activities, clubs and societies to pursue their interests and to discover a love of activities that perhaps they’ve never had the opportunity to try before. There is a multitude of activities to cater for everyone.
