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 book onto one of our experience days which run every Monday and Friday during November.

Other experience days can be arranged on a bespoke basis throughout the school year, 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 which run every Monday and Friday during November.

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. You can book using our form, or just get in touch and we’ll see what we can do.
