Still wondering which school to choose? Here are 10 top reasons why NGHS could well be your school of choice:
Large enough to offer a broad and balanced curriculum, but small enough to know you well and not to feel overwhelming
|#2||Award-winning pastoral support with a dedicated Wellbeing Officer with excellent links to external support agencies if required. Also, a team of hand-picked tutors for Year 7 who support you on a daily basis.|
Clear focus on academic achievement - everyone (staff and pupils alike) want you to do well
|#4||Lots of leadership opportunities as you rise up through the school including Lower School Head Girl Team, House Teams, mentors and prefects|
|#5||Excellent facilities - new building 2018, newer building opening in 2022, wi-fi, dedicated subject classrooms, refurbished laboratories|
Year 7 induction programme- during July and again in September and October - a real opportunity to get to know others and plenty of support if you are coming on your own from your primary school
|#7||A buddy system whereby a Year 8 pupil will meet you, help you and support you to settle in to life at NGHS.|
|#8||Lots of clubs and activities - plenty of opportunities to excel in sport, music, the Arts, subject-based clubs and even non-curriculum clubs such as Japanese and Yoga!|
Drop-in sessions and subject mentoring/support if you run into difficulties from dedicated and enthusiastic teachers and fellow students
