Welcome to
Nottingham Free School

Nottingham Free School is a new secondary school serving the communities of Sherwood, Carrington, Mapperley Park, Woodthorpe and Mapperley.

The school is located in the Courtaulds building on Haydn Road and initially opened in September 2014 for Year Seven students.

To find out more about Nottingham Free School and the exciting opportunities it can offer your child explore our website or get in touch.

"Nottingham Free School is the direct result of parental demand for a local school in the Sherwood area. Over the last two years parents and staff have worked tirelessly to make this school a reality, and I am now proud to welcome you to our new community school.

As a new school, we have been able to shape our curriculum to meet the needs of the local students we serve. NFS delivers a traditional academic curriculum but combines this with an extended school day allowing students to engage in a rich variety of extra curricular activities.

I invite any potential parents and students to come and visit us and find out just why Nottingham Free School is the right choice for your child."

  • Comic Relief

    Friday 24 March

    We are raising money at Nottingham Free School for Comic Relief this Friday 24 March.

    Comic Relief is a major charity based in the UK, with a vision of a just world, free from poverty. It will be a non-uniform day for students for a £1 donation and all students are encouraged to wear something red.

    We will also be holding a bake sale so any cake and biscuit donations would be greatly received.

    Students are to bring a bit of change if they want to buy any cakes or take part in 'beat the teacher goalie' at lunch time!

  • Year 9 Spanish News

    It's a lively time in Spanish for year 9 students at NFS...

    The year 9 students who went on the trip to Castellón have returned full of excitement and stories to tell of their wonderful experience. An amazing time was had by all and many friendships made with the Spanish students. We are thrilled that the students got so much out of the trip, including practising lots of Spanish, and we would like to say a huge thank you to Mrs Barrett for organising it.

    Watch this space for a diary of the trip by some year 9 students!

  • The excitement is building...

    Our Year 9 Spanish students are gearing up for their trip to Castellón next Friday

    Year 9 trip to Spain

    Final preparations are being made for the Year 9 Spanish trip to Castellón. Students and staff are extremely excited to meet our partner school and immerse ourselves in Spanish culture for 5 days.

    Speaking assessments

    Years 7, 8 & 9 are starting preparation for speaking assessments over the next few weeks and students are feeling very confident about making progress on their current point scores in Spanish. Remember, using flash cards and memorising the questions and answers little and often is the best way to succeed!
