Welcome To Northern Junior School
Northern Junior School is situated on the upper slopes of Portsdown Hill and overlooks Portsmouth Harbour and the Isle of Wight. It is set within spacious, attractive grounds that provide a stunning learning environment for children. The school is federated with Northern Infant School, with which it shares the site, and this ensures that there is one learning journey for all pupils.
At Northern Junior we aim to develop all children so that they achieve their full potential. We aim to do this by recognising and building upon their strengths and by identifying their needs and ensuring that these are met. We believe that children learn best through direct experience which is why all staff ensure that our curriculum provides exciting learning opportunities that inspire, interest and challenge children in their learning within a caring, happy environment.
We have high expectations of our pupils and hope that they will take advantage of the numerous academic and sporting opportunities offered here. We promote the highest standards of behaviour and believe that children should develop strong moral values and respect for others in our school and wider community. We value the importance of home and school working together in order to develop strong working partnerships.
If you would like to see the school in action to gauge our energy, enthusiasm and ethos then please do not hesitate to visit us.
