NHJS is the Sunday Times Independent Preparatory School of the Year 2012

It gives me great pleasure to announce that Nottingham High Junior School is officially The Sunday Times Independent Preparatory School of the Year 2012!

This weekend sees the publication of the Sunday Times Top 100 Independent Schools table, which shows a significant improvement in our ranking from last year. We were ranked in 16th place in 2011, based on our SATs performance from 2008-2010, which was an improvement of three places; up from 19th in 2010.

This year sees us ranked in 8th place nationally and even more impressively as the top boys’ prep school outside London, based on our 2009-2011 SATs performance. Furthermore, I expect our position to improve yet again in 2013, as the Sunday Times will use our results from 2010-2012.

As can be seen from the tables below, our Key Stage 2 SATs results over recent years at Level 5, the average level of a 13 year old, are certainly something to be proud of, especially when they are compared to the national percentage of pupils and boys achieving Level 5.

It is my pleasure therefore, to take this opportunity to whole-heartedly thank all the Junior staff for their dedication and the success that they have achieved over my time here at the Junior School.

I do hope that you and your sons will get the chance to enjoy their time in the lime light, when our official title of The Sunday Times Independent Preparatory School of the Year 2012 is revealed this weekend.

With best wishes,

Andrew Earnshaw

Headmaster
