What sets Newcastle High School for Girls apart is that it recognises that every girl is an individual with her own dreams and aspirations. NHSG empowers girls to learn without limits, ensuring they reach their full potential.

But their Newcastle High School for Girls education goes beyond outstanding academics and pastoral care; it fosters a nurturing environment where every girl can be whoever she wants to be and encourages her to embrace her individually.

EMPOWERING GIRLS TO LEAD, BLAZE TRAILS AND SHAPE THE WORLD

Newcastle High School for Girls teachers are experts in tailoring learning experiences to meet the needs of girls. They offer a bespoke curriculum that goes beyond national requirements, helping each girl discover her strengths and her own niche.

The all-girl environment promotes risk-taking and encourages girls to step out of their comfort zones to aim high. Research shows that in such an environment, girls are more likely to participate in classroom discussions, pursue STEM subjects and engage in sports with confidence.

Your daughter will thrive in an environment characterised by exceptional pastoral care, top-notch facilities, and a pioneering spirit. At NHSG, she will learn without limits.

NHSG proudly belongs to the Girls’ Day School Trust (GDST), a leading family of 25 independent girls’ schools in the UK. GDST schools excel academically while prioritising character development beyond the curriculum.

GDST creates an environment where girls thrive and learn from one another. It encourages every girl to embrace every role and subject, trust her abilities, and seize every opportunity. GDST schools prioritise their students’ physical and emotional well-being, offering a wide range of co-curricular activities and pastoral programs.

With 19,000 students under their care, GDST schools consistently achieve remarkable academic results, with a substantial proportion of pupils attaining top grades.

INSPIRATION BEYOND THE CLASSROOM

NHSG believes that inspiration extends beyond the classroom. The school provides an all-encompassing education that equips every girl with ambition, self-assurance, and the skills to pursue her dreams.

As an NHSG pupil, your daughter will have countless learning opportunities outside the classroom. The school’s co-curricular activities complement the curriculum, allowing every girl to learn new skills, broaden her horizons, and have fun along the way. Whether it’s participating in sports, engaging in musical theatre, learning to code, or expressing creativity, NHSG offers a wide range of experiences.

Plus, Newcastle High School for Girls is proud of its extensive trips programme that enhances knowledge and global understanding, starting from Nursery and extending through to Sixth Form, with both UK-based and international opportunities.
