On Monday 29 April 2013, representatives from Northwood College were formally presented with their 'Go4it' award at the HTI (Heads, Teachers and Industry) Employability Awards 2013, which were held at the House of Lords. The awards were hosted by Lord Knight of Weymouth, former Schools Minister and active ambassador for employability education.

'Go4it' is the leading national recognition awards process for schools in the UK which can demonstrate a culture of creativity, innovation and adventure with a positive attitude towards risk. The aims of the Go4it award are to identify, support and give recognition to schools which encourage an overriding self belief, free thinking and can-do attitude across the school, permeate creativity, innovation and a positive attitude of risk across all activities and seek a true spirit of adventure for learning, with a passion for developing the full potential.
Northwood College was awarded the Gold Award - the highest possible accolade and the Assessor's Report praised many areas of the School including its unique Thinking Skills and Emotional Resilience programmes, extra-curricular activities and Enterprise schemes.

Tara Smith, Head of Cognitive Development in the Senior School and Beth Eagles, Head of Thinking Skills in the Junior School, who submitted the application and attended the Awards Ceremony said: 'We were thrilled to receive the award at such a prestigious venue as the House of Lords and for Northwood College to be recognised as such a progressive and innovative school'.
