The history of High Pavement

The original High Pavement School was established in 1788 and it wasn't until 1975 that it turned from grammar school into a sixth form centre. In 1999 the centre merged with New College Nottingham and since then has occupied a prime position on the edge of Nottingham Trent University's City campus, giving our A Level students a real insight into University life, before they've even got there.

When New College Nottingham merged with Central College in 2017 to become Nottingham College, the combined the skills and expertise allowed students to benefit from a wider curriculum and facilities.
