We are incredibly fortunate to be able to draw on the support and help of alumnae from our two founding schools, making our school community stronger than ever. Our ‘old girls’ are a very important part of our School community and you are always welcome at school, no matter how recently or how long ago you left!
We run both the Central High and Church High alumnae associations from School and will be launching a new association for Newcastle High’s alumnae very soon. Watch this space!Central High Church High Newcastle High
GDST Alumnae Network
As Newcastle High is one of the school’s of the Girls’ Day School Trust, all our girls will join the GDST Alumnae Network when they reach Sixth Form. This is an active community of nearly 60,000 former students and staff of the 24 schools and two academies of the GDST. It is the biggest network of its kind in the country.
It brings together alumnae based in the UK and overseas, making connections, sharing news, passing on careers and university expertise, hosting professional and social events, and helping alums link to old and new friends alike – from their old schools and from others.
Who is part of it? GDST women share many characteristics, but the Network is composed of people from many different paths in life – City bankers, stay-at-home mums, charity workers, entrepreneurs and more. The diversity and size of the community are what help to make it special.Visit the GDST Alumnae website
Gender bias survey
In May, we asked our alumnae to take part in a survey recording their experiences and thoughts on gender bias in the workplace. This was as part of our commitment to the Dads4Daughters campaign, where we aim to raise awareness on gender inequality and consider how we can further effect a change in society. 109 of you responded and the full results can be downloaded below.
