Nottingham Free School

Nottingham Free School is a secondary school serving the communities of Sherwood, Carrington, Mapperley Park, Woodthorpe and Mapperley.

In 2017 Ofsted graded NFS as ‘good’ and the first cohort of students went on to secure excellent GCSE results in 2019.

The school motto, ‘Work Hard, Be Kind’, permeates every facet of the school. These values shape the attitudes we expect from staff and students alike, and drive our high standards of education and care.
