Mr Fisher
At The North Halifax Grammar School our motto is “Living to Learn, Learning to Live” and this encapsulates both our enthusiasm for academic study and our understanding that we are preparing our students for the challenges of adult life.  We are a selective 11-18 school with a particular focus on the sciences and mathematics but we believe strongly in the need for young people to experience a broad and balanced education, which includes foreign languages, literature, art, music, computing, history, geography, physical education and design and technology. Our teachers are specialists in their subjects who communicate their passion for learning but also offer excellent and supportive pastoral care to ensure that our students really enjoy and get the best out of their time at school. We offer an outstanding range of trips, visits, clubs and activities that allow everyone to try new things, and to find and develop all sorts of talents and enthusiasms. We are very proud to have been designated an “Outstanding Provider” by Ofsted no fewer than four times. But we are even more proud of the feedback from parents and students which tells us that this is a happy school in which young people develop knowledge, values and attitudes that make them succeed and their families proud.
Welcome to our website and to our community.

Mr. A.G. Fisher (Principal)
