Head's welcome

Welcome to Norfolk House School, a place where our children engage and thrive on learning.

We pride ourselves on the community that is Norfolk House. From our small class sizes to our personalised learning provision, we do everything we can to ensure that your child flourishes and enjoys a successful career with us.

Through their time at the school, we endeavour to add year on year value to their education, ensuring that pupils who leave us are confident, articulate independent learners with a thirst for knowledge and a curiosity about the world around them, as well as tolerant, empathetic, well-rounded individuals.

We constantly endeavour to provide a blend of innovation and traditional teaching to ensure that we attain the highest academic standards, with our pupils’ success achieved as a by-product of the exciting curriculum and fantastic teaching and learning. Our committed and caring staff ensure that each child feels supported and cared for, enabling them to reach their individual potential.

I am truly passionate about what we provide at Norfolk house; proud of our pupils and staff – especially the way we nurture and develop a love of life long learning.

With best wishes,

Paul Jowett, Headteacher


We are proud of our achievements. We have a nurturing environment where children feel supported and valued.

We want our pupils to be excited by school and all it offers. We want our pupils to develop their curiosity and independent thinking skills; we also want our pupils to develop confidence in all that they do.

Norfolk House has a very strong community. Parents and pupils are committed and supportive of all the school does; this is a key ingredient of the school’s success.

Due to the school’s success and popularity, we do operate waiting list and priority waiting list systems. The majority of our families live in Muswell Hill, Highgate and Crouch End.

Our Nursery, Reception and Form 1 classes are housed in a converted three-storey Victorian house in Princes Avenue, Muswell Hill (previously Montessori House Nursery, which was acquired by Bellevue Education and merged with Norfolk House School in 2013).

Form 2 to Form 6 are housed in a charming Victorian house which retains many of its original features, in Muswell Avenue.
