My name is Mr Tromans and welcome to our website. This is a welcoming, friendly, vibrant and happy school, where staff and students are treated with care and respect. I believe the school’s values and ethos are indicative of the Cumbrian spirit and represent the best of Maryport and West Cumbria.

The success of the school is built on positive relationships. I see this on a daily basis: dedicated staff and committed students who have positive and constructive relationships, the result is happy and confident learners who are inspired and achieve well.

The school’s aim is to support the development of healthy, confident, capable and happy young people, who are supportive and tolerant of each other; a school that builds understanding and recognises individuality, whilst embracing collective responsibility.

We aim to make school an enjoyable and productive experience for every child, where every young person looks forward to the possibilities of each day with energy and enthusiasm.

The five principles that guide Netherhall School are:

  • Students First – students’ best interests are at the centre of all our decisions.
  • Aspiration – to be fiercely ambitious for all our students.
  • Quality – to provide high-quality learning opportunities.
  • Opportunity – to enrich student’s learning.
  • Community – to play an active role in the community.

If you are a parent, student or a visitor and have any questions, hopefully you’ll find the answers on our website. It contains general information, latest news, details of events, parents’ evenings, policy documents, and other important information about attendance, behaviour, homework and extra-curricular activities.

If you require any further information, please contact the school’s main reception.

Netherhall School Girls Rugby

The girls rugby season is well underway now and although rugby practice hasn't been as well attended as previous years we have lots more new faces trying out for the rugby team. Our only fixture so far has been an U15 Rugby Union tournament, which took place at Lakes College last week. The girls worked really well as a team and played brilliantly considering the majority of them haven't touched a rugby ball since last year.

Their first game was against Keswick School and despite it being freezing cold the girls were determined to state their intentions immediately. This came in the form of Abbi Langley weaving in and out of the Keswick girls’ defensive line and scoring right from kick off!!! There were further tries in this match from Abbi, Paige Johnstone and Abigail Jackson. The overall score being Netherhall 5-4.

Their next game was against a combined team of Beacon Hill and Solway School, this is where the girls really came into their own, with fantastic defence from Elliemya Petre and Kate Walling the opposition looked like they had slim chance of scoring. However, they managed to score one try near the end of the game making the final score 7-1 to Netherhall with tries from Paige Johnstone, Abbi Langley, Georgia Mason-Lowe, Abigail Jackson and Chloe Pape.

The final game was against Workington Academy, which was always going to be the battle for the best team. Unfortunately, we went into the game with 3 significant players out with injury and the girls felt they had already been defeated. This didn't stop the unstoppable Abbi Langley scoring again, Georgia Mason-Lowe, Emmi Chilton and Imarni Barker put up a heroic effort in defence but it wasn't quite enough. Final score Workington 5-2. The girls will be travelling to Newcastle on Friday, 9 February to take part in a tournament and then stay afterwards to watch the Falcons match. What a fantastic end to the term. Good luck girls.

Now we need to see how the Year 7 & 8's get on in their fixtures which are not until 21 February.

Stunning Netherhall School Scarf

It is with great pride that, by popular request, I introduce the Netherhall School scarf. Since the introduction of the new school uniform, students have been universally complimented on their smart attire and appearance.

A number of students asked me to research the possibility of a school scarf, which I have duly done. On first sight of the new Netherhall School scarf, students said:

‘Wow, that’s ace! It’s straight out of Hogwarts, just like a Gryffindor scarf from Harry Potter – only even better!’

The colours of claret and gold are the traditional colours of Netherhall School and I have reintroduced the original Netherhall School crest of the Roman Eagle over the water.

The Roman Eagle symbolises Maryport’s ancient and historic association with the Romans, the water the River Ellen and the Solway.

I hope you like the Netherhall School scarf as much as the students do. The scarves are available for purchase from the regular Netherhall School, school uniform shop, West Lakes Embroidery on Curzon Street.
