About Us

Head of school welcome message

There is no doubt that Northfields International High School is an exceptional school in an exceptional environment. Our visitors often remark that from their first steps on campus, they can see we are a very special school – not only for our beautiful campus but also for our happy and welcoming students and staff. In fact at Northfields, we pride ourselves on our friendly and caring atmosphere and our fundamental emphasis on values in learning. Since Northfields was founded in 2001, we have held paramount our ethos of openness and caring for each other, within the school and across our wider community.
Through our balanced curriculum and holistic approach to education, Northfields encourages our students to expand their thinking, to learn how to solve problems, not just in lessons, but also in their day-to-day relations with others, in our environment and in our community. We encourage our students to be inquisitive, caring and proactive; to be eager to try new things; to take responsibility; and to share with others.

We aim to ensure that our students develop the skills they will need to adapt, to learn, to create and to make an impact that is meaningful to them.
We are proud that at Northfields, we are able to bring together so many different people with a variety of backgrounds and experiences, and we recognize that all have important roles to play in building our strong and rich learning community. At Northfields we value each contribution that our students make in the classroom, on the sports field, through their participation in cultural events and through their daily interactions with each other.
I hope that in visiting our website you gain some feel for the values we share as a learning community and the pride we feel for our outstanding students and our wonderful school life.
