NKS Community

As a part of our mission statement, community is very important to us here at The Norton Knatchbull School.  We celebrate diversity as part of our community. As a result, our young people are able to make informed and positive life choices, and are equipped to face the challenges of a fast-changing, competitive and increasingly global environment.

In this section you will see the history of our house system as well as what our library can offer the community in school.
