Mission Statement

“At New River College we want the very best for our pupils, so that they leave us as confident learners, prepared for further education, employment or training and in a position to make the best of their lives.  We have a hard working and committed staff team who are dedicated to raising achievement and ensuring the best possible school experience for our pupils.

It is crucial that children develop the core skills and knowledge they will need to succeed in further education, employment or training, so English and Mathematics are a significant focus for the school in getting children to a level where they can succeed.  We are committed however, to a rich wider curriculum, where children get numerous opportunities for first hand experiences and access to a wide range of knowledge and opportunities to develop as learners.  We also want our children to understand that learning can be fun!”

  • Making sure all pupils have the skills to return to mainstream education or to access their next steps in learning
  • Working in partnership with others, especially Islington schools
