I have had a DS and DD at Norman Court. You should definitely go because we love it and all parents I know think the Head is GREAT. He is quite new and I think no way will he move - the school is on the up.
There is so much to say about Norman Court School. It is an amazing school that helps all children to acheive their potential. I have a DS and two DD there currently. I looked at many schools, chose this one and have not been disappointed.
The Head is supportive and very well liked - by the children too. The teaching team are absolutely AMAZING.
There are some military children there and some children from overseas. This adds to the depth and breadth of the overall education.
Make and appointment with the Head to look around, you don't need to wait for the open days.
Norman Court School , Salisbury Hi Tulip 27. Norman Court is a gentle truly nurturing school environment.This is often seen as a weakness by outsiders! I'm not sure why,to me it is it's biggest strength. All my children have thrived there,and have hugely benefited from a happy non pressured childhood. Something which is a rarity these days. Yet I'm delighted to say the academic results have also been a joy so I can tell you the end product is everything you could hope for.As for the Headmaster,I really hope that he stays for a long time. He is a true educationalist with a great sense of humour. I highly recommend the school well worth a closer look.
My elder son is about to complete his 10th year at Norman Court which says it all. Very pleased with the all round education and nurturing. All year 8s going to first choice schools. Setting is beautiful and school makes use of this wonderfully - not just sport, but all outdoor activities, wildlife, animals, adventure, wide games etc. Added to that the school has fantastic music staff, witness the recent inspirational summer concert and drama opportunities are increasing too.
