Facilities

An inspirational north London setting.

Set in a unique Tudor building over 500 years old, North Bridge House Senior Canonbury is an inspiring learning environment, complete with contemporary teaching facilities to meet the needs of students and staff.

The quaint but spacious and well-equipped classrooms are surrounded by beautiful gardens, which students enjoy for outdoor learning as well as breaktime and recreation.

Next door to the school is the famous Canonbury Tower, one of the oldest surviving buildings in Islington. The Tower was built sometime between 1509 and 1532 and has been home to Thomas Cromwell, chief minister to King Henry VIII, as well as scientist and philosopher, Sir Francis Bacon, and famous writer Oliver Goldsmith.

Our students are reminded of the school’s history through the House System in which our three houses are named after Cromwell, Bacon and Goldsmith.

Cultural and sporting hotspot.

Students also take full advantage of the excellent sporting opportunities in the local area, frequenting world-class facilities such as the Lee Valley White Water Centre (London 2012 Olympic Games venue). They also benefit from an exciting collaboration with the Estorick Collection of Modern Italian Art, where students are regularly welcomed to exclusively ‘takeover’ Exhibitions and Sixth Form students enjoy gallery tours narrated entirely in Italian.

Our broad sporting curriculum benefits from our close proximity to the best facilities for outdoor adventure and water sports, as well as yoga, martial arts and fitness classes.

All students can experience nearly 20 different sports on the curriculum in Years 7 and 8, revisiting them in Years 9 and 10 to develop their skills and interests. Nearly all those sports are then available at GCSE, with core sport still on the curriculum for students not taking PE as a GCSE option.
