Due to the increased transmission risk posed by the current Omicron variant, we have taken the decision to postpone the Open Mornings for External Applicants which were due to take place between Wednesday 5th January and Tuesday 11th January. We intend to offer alternative dates for all External Applicants to have a tour of the school and to meet staff and students when the current number of covid cases reduces.

Further information for External Applicants can be found by clicking the link below. It is strongly recommended that you read this information first prior to making an application.

Parents of students currently studying at NSB should note that the Sixth Form Open Evening due to be held on Thursday 6th January has been cancelled.

It is also highly recommended that all applicants read the full details of our admissions process which are detailed below, before applying to the school for a place in the Sixth Form.
