School Information

Welcome to The Netherhall School website where we hope you will find all the information you need.

The Netherhall School is a thriving and highly distinctive co-educational 11–18 school, which serves Cambridge City and beyond. We are proud to have been at the centre of high quality educational activity in Cambridge for over 140 years.

The school's values are summed up in the phrase, 'Inspiring, Individual, Inclusive.'


We believe that students learn best in an environment which inspires them, high quality facilities in purpose built spaces.  Also that they deserve the most inspiring teachers and support staff delivering a world-class curriculum.


We believe that each student brings their own unique potential and talents to the school.  We tailor our curriculum and support to meet the needs of each individual rather than using a 'best fit' methodology.  Extra-curricular activities are not seen as an optional extra but as an expected part of a student's discovery of themselves.


Netherhall is a school where all students are valued equally and where we believe all students should experience equal opportunities and success.

We believe that these three factors come together to make a successful school.  Crucially, examination results are not the only measure of success.  These are vitally important (and standards are very high at the school - see the section on examination results) but we also want to develop young adults who are: tolerant of each other, their faiths and backgrounds; who have excellent skills of communication, teamwork, empathy; and who have the self-motivation and resilience needed to be successful in the outside world.
