Our Junior School facilities at Chapman House in Sandyford provide an exceptional learning environment for girls age 3 – 11.
Chapman House sits in five acres of grounds and encompasses a Grade II listed John Dobson designed villa – indeed our school offers a little piece of the countryside right in the heart of the city.
The facilities are of outstanding quality and are unique in this region. Having invested in a multi-million pound development recently, the whole school has been designed and modelled to meet the needs of a 21st Century education.
Our specialist Nursery facilities are both spacious and colourful to create space where girls can actively learn through play. Doors from the Nursery open directly on to a wonderful and safe outdoor area which means the girls can be outside as much as possible throughout the year.
Indeed, the classrooms for all Year Groups are bright and superbly resourced – each providing excellent space in which to teach and learn. In addition, Art studios, a Science room, Library and Dance studio alongside our beautiful School Hall and other flexible areas mean that we can deliver an excellent curriculum unfettered by the limitations of space.
Learning at Newcastle High does not stop at the classroom door and our outdoor environment is stunning. Features include a sensory garden and picnic area, a fire pit with seating, a pond and bog garden, outdoor classrooms and storytelling area, an amphitheatre, woodland walks, wildflower areas and kitchen garden. Our two all-weather sports surfaces mean that we are able to deliver a full and exciting PE programme for the girls.
