We are thrilled that, once again, Newcastle High School for Girls is listed as one of the top independent schools for sport in the country by the School Sports Magazine; the only school in the area to appear in this prestigious publication. Sport plays an important part in the life of NHSG and it is great to receive recognition for the levels of participation and success achieved as well as a fine tribute to the hard work and dedication of both the girls and staff.
Yarm School, the closest geographically, was listed just below us; which set the scene for a great Under 16 Netball match against them at Regional Finals at the end of January!
While the accolade takes into account the performance and participation of our teams in 2014/15, we are already achieving considerable success in 2015/16.
On Saturday 30th January the Under 14, 16 and 19 Netball teams were at Sport Central, Northumbria University. We were the only school to have all three teams qualify for this competition following our success in the County Championships.
The Under 15 Netball Team finished Runners-up in the GDST Finals.
The Hockey teams have also had a great season so far; the Under 15 team are County Champions and qualified for the North East England Finals and the Under 16 team remain unbeaten in the league.
The Junior and Intermediate swimmers won at the North East Relay Championships to qualify for National Finals and once again, won the Northern Trust Rally.
The Under 17 biathletes came 2nd in the National Championships.
This is just a snapshot of the Sport at NHSG. Girls of all ages and ability levels get the chance to compete or simply take part for enjoyment.
