Northwood Secondary School

The new school officially opened at an event on 13 October 2016.

Northwood Secondary School

Hillingdon Council's £144 million secondary school building and expansion programme is one of the largest in London. The £35 million Northwood School rebuild is a part of this commitment, and offers 1,080 places in total and demonstrates the council's continued dedication to meeting the need for more school places for secondary students in the borough. 
The new building provides space for six forms of entry (an increase of one form of entry).

The number of applicants who named the school as their first choice for 2016 entry were up by 72% on the previous year and all of this autumn's 180 year seven places have been filled, making Northwood School the first choice for local residents.

The school building has three storeys, measures 9,800 square metres in size and will promote an academic focus on performing arts. A stage area with retractable seating sits at the heart of  the school. Additional arts facilities include an outdoor amphitheatre and performing arts specialist rooms.

The building will allow the school to provide an academic focus with performing arts and provides:

  • 53 classrooms (including 34 general teaching spaces, specialist rooms for performing arts, science, design and technology and art).
  • A library.
  • Post 16 study and social areas.
  • Staff accommodation, kitchen and other ancillary facilities.
  • Special educational needs spaces.
  • A performing arts suite that is central to the accommodation, main hall, associated stage area/drama area and large dance studio.
  • Four court sports hall.
  • External pitches, including an 'all weather' pitch and multi use games area (MUGA).

 The project was delivered in partnership with Farrans Construction.
