We’ve been educating girls for 150 years, empowering them to take an equal place in society. Since then, and as part of an impressive network of women, our alumnae have been shaping the world in a myriad of ways.
We’re delighted to welcome all alumnae of NHSG, CNHS and NCHS to the NHSG alumnae community.
Amicitia in Aeternum
Our Alumnae are hugely important to us; from the moment you became a pupil you became part of our family.
Being part of our alumnae community offers not only a way of keeping in touch with the friends, teachers and community that formed such a key part of your life but also access to the wider GDST alumnae network, a professional community of over 70,000 women that spans the globe and every professional sector. You can join this community through GDST Life.
As an alumna you join a growing community that has a combined history of over 300 years. We’re immensely proud of our heritage and the intelligent, fearless and resilient young women we have taught.
There are hundreds, if not thousands, that deserve to be recognised individually but you can read just a few of their stories in our ‘Alumnae Through the Decades’.
Our digital archive is a fascinating insight into our changing society as well as being completely searchable if you are looking for some memories of your time at school.
One of the great things about NHSG is that, while you might leave Newcastle and embark on future careers, further studies and all the other journeys of a long, interesting life, NHSG never leaves you. You are – and will always be – part of our family.
NHSG is just the beginning. By keeping in touch as part of our alumnae network you will be an important part of our future too.
Central Newcastle High School Alumnae.
Ante Deum Asto
The Old Girls' Guild handed over care of CNHS alumnae to us in 2014 when NHSG was founded following the merger of Central and Church High Schools.
The Central High ethos and spirit is still reflected in that of NHSG and Central’s alumnae community continues to be an important part of the School. The singing of '40 Years On' and 'The Keel Row' still elicits fond memories of school amongst all our alumnae, young and old alike. As an Old Girl you will always be welcome in the School and will be invited to reunions and other events, receive news from the school and other alumnae as well as having access to the wider GDST alumnae network.
There are plenty of ways that you can get involved and be part of the future of the School so please do keep in touch.
Newcastle Church High Alumnae.
Vincit Omnia Veritas
From 1889 to 2014 Tankerville Terrace was home to the girls of Newcastle upon Tyne Church High School and, while the pupils and staff that defined the school have left, the Church High School spirit very much lives on in its red bricks, albeit under a slightly different name.
Church High’s alumnae community continues to be an important part of the school. We invite all our alumnae to reunions and other events, keep you up to date with news from the school and other alumnae and you are more than welcome to visit the school in its new form; perhaps you will find that not so much has changed as girls still ‘work with a will at Tankerville’!
There are plenty of ways that you can get involved and be part of the future of the School so do please keep in touch.
