In September 2016 we opened the doors to brand new Senior School facilities – the finest in the North East.
Situated on Tankerville Terrace in Jesmond, the Senior School fuses the traditional with the contemporary to create facilities that meet the needs of a 21st Century education.
We have remodelled the original Victorian Building on the site and constructed a new iconic three story building alongside. These are surrounded by mature trees and plenty of outdoor space. Our Brandling Park site, minutes from Tankerville Terrace provides additional learning space. Combined, the resources and facilities available to the girls at Newcastle High School for Girls are outstanding.
Every classroom is equipped with the most up to date technology using giant smart screens which allow a seamless flow between the teachers and the girls’ devices. This level of technology provides the means for truly interactive and exciting lessons every day.
Our seven Science Laboratories are fitted with the state-of-the-art equipment and our Science Studio and Science Demonstration areas offer university-style teaching opportunities. The Science Laboratories and areas occupy the top floor of our iconic new building which also features a roof top Science Terrace where outdoor experiments and activities can be undertaken.
Other specialist facilities include a Library Resources Centre, Home Economics, ICT and Technology rooms. The Sixth Form Common Room is a spectacular space for the girls to study and relax and a Library, exclusive to the Sixth Form is already a firm favourite with the girls.
Our Creative Arts spaces are also impressive. We boast four Art Studios with beautiful light, performance and recording studios as well as individual practice rooms. Our large Dance Studio provides ample space for the girls.
With professional standard lighting and sound equipment, our brand new School Hall is a stunning performing arts venue seating over 500 – perfect for lectures and assemblies as well as for staging performances. Alongside the Hall is our spacious dining area where we serve an exciting selection of hot meals and salads for lunch each day.
For Sport too, the facilities are second to none. We have two substantial Sports Halls, hard courts and a fully equipped fitness suite. An AstroTurf pitch and athletics track are due to be completed in January 2017.
The light, space and resources available create an exceptional learning environment for girls at NHSG.
