Newcastle High School for Girls is the leader in girls’ education in the North East. Everything we do supports the wellbeing, development and academic progress of the girls.


Every girl has huge potential arising from her unique character, strengths and attributes. At NHSG we support, nurture and challenge every girl to be herself, to achieve her potential and to approach life both at school and beyond with real enjoyment and enthusiasm.

Every day at school we introduce our three year-olds to the wonders of the world, spark the intellectual curiosity of eleven year-olds, and intellectually stimulate and challenge our Sixth-Formers to engage with their learning at the highest possible level. The very purpose of our school is to design opportunities for our girls to grow in confidence and courage while developing knowledge and embracing the skills which will equip them powerfully for life beyond school.

Your daughter will be taught and inspired by teachers who are experts in tailoring the learning experiences to the needs of girls; through our bespoke curriculum, which goes beyond requirements, she will discover her strengths and find her niche. She will study and grow in an environment characterised by outstanding facilities which have been designed around the curriculum and the girls themselves.

As one of the 25 schools of the Girls’ Day School Trust, we are part of a family that puts girls first in every way.  We are pioneers in, and shapers of the future of girls’ education and are uniquely placed to help every girl fulfil her potential and her dreams.

At NHSG, there is an almost tangible buzz to our happy yet purposeful atmosphere, and I do hope you will visit the School soon, to experience for yourself our special atmosphere and ethos and the sheer joy of our pupils at being part of a real community.
