Business Profile On 1st September 1974, Nower Hill High School began its existence within a scheme of re-organisation of secondary education in the London Borough of Harrow.
The school - called then HEADSTONE SCHOOL - started life in 1929 when the red brick building in Pinner Road was built.
From the moment the school opened it started expanding into a series of outbuildings that proliferated on the site. In the late 1950's a new school was planned which opened in the early 1960's. Another new block was added in 1972 and further buildings were taken into use in 1978. Nine-tenths of the school buildings are in new premises and our grassed playing field was considerably extended in 1980.
1993/94 saw the start of a £2.75 million development programme which has given a new 13 classroom block, a Business Studies and Information Technology Suite, a Design and Technology Suite, 5 new Science Laboratories with Preparation Rooms and the magnificent Gristwood Centre housing Music, Dance and Drama Studios and the Sports Hall.
