10:00am – 1:00pm

Our Whole School Open Day is our biggest open event of the year and provides the best opportunity to find out all you need to know about our school.

There will be refreshments, a talk and presentation by our Head, Julie Keller, as well as opportunities to meet and speak to our expert staff and see our innovative site and facilities.

An outdoor extravaganza concludes the day with a chance to try your hand at archery, climbing and toasting marshmallows around the firepit. You’re more than welcome to join us. Book your place using the form at either end of this page, or click on the image.

We recommend that you allow at least two hours in order to make the most of your visit.

Tots have fun
Various dates throughout the year

An exciting programme of assorted indoor and outdoor activities for girls aged 2 – 3 years, designed to build on their unique interests and talents and equip them with confidence, all while having fun!

Sessions are free of charge and run from 10:00am – 11:00am. Refreshments will be provided, and siblings are welcome!

There will be varied activities which will run on Thursdays or Fridays and we will post our dates for next academic year when they have been confirmed. We can’t wait to get started – this year has been so much fun.

Reception Taster Days – to suit you!

If your daughter is ready to start in Reception class, we would love her to join us for an hour or so to enjoy fun and exciting activities alongside our current Reception girls. Taster Days are an excellent way for her to spend some time in our outstanding, stimulating environment and for you to see the school on a ‘normal’ day and to chat through anything that you may be thinking about with regards to starting school. We know it’s a busy life and so we’re happy to accommodate your time availability wherever possible. Call Sue or Katie in Admissions on 0115 935 4444 to arrange a visit to suit you.

Year 7 Experience Days

Joining us for a day – or part of a day – will help your daughter to find out more about school life at NGHS, experience the energy and enthusiasm we value and encourage, and begin to get to know our Senior School, our staff and our girls.

If your daughter is currently in Year 6 and would like to spend a day with us, joining a Year 7 class for a day of lessons and hearing all about NGHS life from one of our current girls, then contact Sue or Katie in our Admissions Office on 0115 935 4444 to ask about booking onto one of our experience days. These can be arranged on a bespoke basis, and we’ll always do our best to accommodate any special requests – just get in touch. 

Sixth Form Experience Days

The Sixth Form is such an important part of your daughter’s education, adding those final touches to the shaping of her successful future. The best way to get a feel for our vibrant Sixth Form environment is to come and spend a day with us at one of our Sixth Form experience days.

Experience Days provide an opportunity for your daughter to immerse herself in the excellent academic provision we offer, and share in the energy and enthusiasm of our staff and girls. Just get in touch with Sue or Katie in our Admissions Office on 0115 935 4444 and we’ll see what we can arrange for you.
