North London Collegiate School (UK), founded in 1850 by the great Victorian educationalist Frances Mary Buss, has pioneered women’s education among schools in England, and has provided an outstanding education for its pupils for over 160 years.
In the United Kingdom, North London Collegiate School has an exemplary record of the highest academic achievements and a strong tradition and record of providing an ambitious education, a spirit of adventure and encouragement of individuality.
NLCS (UK) exam results place the school consistently within the top five schools in the UK league tables for A-Levels and GCSEs. In the Sixth Form, students are offered the opportunity to study for the International Baccalaureate Diploma, the prestigious international qualification respected by universities and employers around the world. Each year, results from this programme are excellent, with an average over the last six years of over 40 points per student.
It is consistent with the School’s outward-looking ethos that we have embarked on the exciting project of opening a Korean campus on the beautiful island of Jeju. The close relationship between the schools is mutually beneficial and exchanges and visits between them is just one of the many close ties which bind them together; staff appointed to NLCS Jeju are interviewed at NLCS (UK) and are also trained at the UK school in order to ensure a thorough understanding of the NLCS ethos.
An emphasis on an ambitious education which encourages scholarship and a love of subcject, the importance placed on pastoral care such that no pupil is without support in their time at the School and the strength of an education which truly allows the whole personality to grow are the basis of an NLCS education. We are extremely proud of all that has been achieved at our Korean campus in bringing this philosophy to life in a new cultural context and look forward to welcoming you to the North London Collegiate family of schools.
