Norlington School For Boys is a single-sex comprehensive school located in the borough of Waltham Forest in London, England. The Head Teacher is John Hernandez.


It currently has 580 pupils from Years 7-11 (ages 11 to 16), with approximately 120 pupils in each year group.[1]


Norlington Road Council School for boys, girls, and infants opened in 1903. In 1932 it was reorganized for senior girls, junior girls, and infants. In 1940 the school was badly damaged by bombs. The junior department became mixed in 1942. In 1948 the school became a secondary modern school for boys. An extension was completed in 1964 to provide science labs and woodwork and metalwork rooms.[2] In 1968, Waltham Forest adopted the Comprehensive system and it became Norlington Junior High School for Boys, catering for 11-14 year-olds. Following a Borough-wide reorganisation in the early 1980s, it adopted its current name and function.


The school has enjoyed sporting success over the years and in 2009 was awarded "State Sport School of the Year" by the Daily Telegraph.
