Welcome From The Headteacher

We are a thriving school in the heart of Gaborone, Botswana.  We are proud of our diversity; our dedicated teachers and students come from more than thirty different nationalities. Our philosophy is one of encouragement and we endeavour to bring out the very best in our pupils. We aim to instil an inspiration and a love of learning that will remain with them long after they leave us.  We encourage their curiosity of the world around them, thereby creating intellectual and critical thinking, along with individual creativity.  Our students are encouraged to think of the world globally, and to be environmentally responsible. We give our students a sense of community: respect, tolerance and an appreciation of others' beliefs and cultures.  We strive to ensure that students leave NPS with a sense of their own worth, with self-confidence and a positive attitude to life.  We are fortunate in having a strong and inspired teaching staff that provides every student with motivational learning opportunities. We carefully weave areas of our curriculum together to make meaningful learning for our students. An openness to ongoing improvement and development is essential to staying abreast with developments in education as well as keeping our learning environment stimulating and interesting. There has been a dedication to the external, objective accreditation of our school as part of our ongoing quality assurance.  Our school provides an attractive, stimulating indoor and outdoor environment for students to learn and develop their skills. Northside is proud of our whole school community. We believe in building strong, positive relationships between all stakeholders; our pupils, parents, staff and school council.  We explore some of the most exciting, carefully researched developments in education and work towards implementing these in our school. Our objective is for our students to leave Northside School proud of their own successes and to be equipped with the necessary skills and knowledge to face the future.  As a student or parent of Northside School you are guaranteed to experience many memorable events, special moments and lasting friendships.Thank you for your interest in our school and should you have any questions, we encourage you to contact us. 

Yours sincerely - Jessica Richards, Headteacher,
