Northwood College

Northwood College is an independent school for girls aged 3 to 18. The school was founded in 1878 and is located in Northwood, England.


Northwood College offers an Advanced Cognitive Development Program. Northwood College has not yet introduced the IB diploma, although many other schools in the area have (e.g. St. Helen's School, North London Collegiate School). Northwood College has A-Level as the only public exam for Year 13s. As part of school trips, in Year 4, there is an annual trip to Ivinghoe. An annual trip for Year 6's is to the Isle of Wight for a week.


During the 1990s, the school grew considerably and the existing facilities were modernised and new ones added.

Changes included:

  • 25 metre swimming pool and sports hall
  • The Centenary Library
  • Three laboratories
  • Two technology rooms
  • A second computer room
  • A third Art room, dedicated to Graphics
  • A Junior School, Pre-prep and Nursery accommodation

The new Performing Arts Centre provides state of the art facilities including a Recital Hall, a Drama Studio, a Music Technology Suite, two music teaching rooms, ten practice rooms, a Recording Studio and a Conservatory. It was officially opened in March 2005 and this will allow the school to make further changes to the existing buildings.
