Senior SchoolHilary French

What is it that really characterises a School? At Newcastle High we believe it is our unique blend of ethos, environment and people.

An ethos that encourages everyone to be their best, an environment where community spirit is strong and people who want to inspire and be inspired.

Our Senior School is a dynamic learning environment that is innovative, forward looking and outward facing. It is also rooted in the traditional values of respect and understanding.

Exceptional teaching by our staff is delivered within the finest facilities to create an environment where there are no limits to learning. There is real excitement here and a focus on every girl – nobody is overlooked and everyone is able to shine through our personalised approach.

Our curriculum extends and challenges, excites and enthuses and helps the girls to become independent, flexible learners.

An unrivalled programme of co-curricular activities offers opportunities in Sport, Music, Dance, Art and so much more.

In September 2016, we moved to brand new Senior School facilities in Tankerville Terrace. Designed for a 21st Century education, these facilities are the finest the region has to offer.

The Senior School is engaging, welcoming and boasts excellent facilities with both formal and informal learning spaces in line with our curriculum approach. These  provide opportunities for collaboration and discussion, as well as quiet reflection and genuine personal learning and discovery. The facilities support girls as they specialise in the Sciences, Languages, Art, Design, Music, Sport and the Performing Arts and digital and mobile technologies will support learning.
