Newcastle High School for Girls - NHSG

At NHSG, your daughter can be the girl she wants to be.

Every girl is her own person, with her own dreams and aspirations and, at NHSG, our aim is to empower girls to be leaders, world shapers and trailblazers. This starts from the moment a girl joins our school, and, whether she is aged 3 or 18, we will help her to find her own voice and to have the self-assurance and skills to achieve her dreams.

At NHSG, an all-girl education is more than just outstanding academic and pastoral care. It’s about equipping every girl to learn without limits so that she can be whoever she wants to be.

In the words of one of our students: "NHSG really provides a guiding hand to all their students to allow them to excel in their own talents and passions." We couldn't have said it better ourselves.
