Good Schools Guide

North Bridge House Senior Canonbury

"Canonbury's success is the sum of parts: small school, small classes, late start Wednesdays for all, differentiated and hi-tech teaching delivered by sympathetic teachers who ‘don’t overload us with stress’."

"Pupils say they ‘are never bored’ and we confess to reluctance at leaving fascinating maths class on equations: clever use of white boards (two) and central screen hooked up to computer-generated presentation allowed romp through world’s most famous equations, like E=mc2, on one hand and brush up of GCSE essentials on other. Some students encouraged to opine on theory of relativity whilst others coaxed to recall calculation for area of triangle. Whole class fully engaged and encouraged by teacher’s repeated assurances that we all knew more than we realised."
