Like schools across the UK, we closed our facilities for the majority of pupils on 20th March following Government advice, while remaining open for the children of key workers.  At NHSG, and all schools within the Girls’ Day School Trust, we moved to Guided Home Learning allowing all our pupils, from age 3 to 18, to have continuity of education while they are no longer able to access our school facilities. On Tuesday 2nd June at NHSG we have been able to reopen our doors to pupils in Nursery, Reception, Year 1 and Year 6, but for now our other Year Groups will continue with their Guided Home Learning programme which has been exemplary and sees our teachers deliver live online lessons so that an NHSG education can continue unabated.

Our priority during this period has been the girls, putting them first to ensure they have the best possible education in the given circumstances. I must pay tribute to our staff at NHSG who in challenging times are continuing to deliver an excellent standard of education and support the girls’ wellbeing during this time of uncertainty.

Each day during this national emergency has brought its challenges, but it has also brought new opportunities for creative and innovative approaches to life and learning and highlighted the value of our strong community. The NHSG spirit remains undimmed.

As we all start to get used to the new ‘normal’ for the foreseeable future, we also look forward to the time when we can once again welcome our whole community back to School.

With my best wishes
