Welcome to Nottingham Free School. We opened in September 2014 to become the first free school in the city of Nottingham. In 2017 Ofsted graded NFS as ‘good’, and our first cohort of students went on to secure excellent GCSE results in 2019.

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

I invite any potential parents and students to come and visit us and find out just why Nottingham Free School is the right choice for your child.
