At Maplesden, we believe in a collective sense of purpose. Every person associated with the Maplesden community should feel valued and supported. We believe that high expectations, accountability, risk taking and mutual support go hand in hand and are the key elements of our community.

We want our students to be confident, outward looking and successful with an international mindedness which enables them to develop strong emotional resilience, empathy and understanding of their own and other cultures. We want to ensure that our students develop so that they have a confident individual identity within a community that has a strong purpose and definition. Maplesden Noakes thrives on a belief in high expectations achieved through mutual support. This carefully crafted empathetic, high achieving community with excellent outcomes and high expectations is something we believe is unique and special. We are very proud of what we stand for.

Our Grammar Stream

No two children are alike. One size doesn’t fit all. Parents of able students tell us that they want their child to benefit from high academic standards and the opportunity to study with students of a similar ability. They worry their child will lose confidence in the ‘sink or swim’ hothouse environment of a traditional single sex grammar school.
