Norden has been a primary school for over 60 years and is situated on Shawfield Lane. The school moved from its original site to Shawfield Middle School premises and has become a large Community School.
We have excellent facilities such as a fully equipped cookery room, pottery/art room with kilns, rooms designated to music and drama, as well as a state of the art ICT suite. At the rear of the school are huge playing fields and several playgrounds with excellent play facilities for our children. We also have a small hall, a separate dining room and a large gymnasium. Norden library is also located at the school along with Norden Sure Start Children’s Centre.
Being a Community School means that there are many activities taking place for the community during the day, in the evenings and weekends for much of the year. Our children also benefit from these activities.
The school is a two-form entry mixed primary with a Nursery which means we can take up to 60 children in each year group. We hope you find the information contained in here to be useful, but realise that this is no substitute for a visit. Do come and see us and we will be happy to give you further details.
