Our Nursery, Infant and Junior School is the most amazing place, providing an excellent and challenging academic education, all wrapped up in a vibrant, fun and exciting setting. At our summer open event you’ll meet our Head, Mrs Laura Fowler and some of our wonderful girls, tour the school, and find out more about:

Our staff

Who are focused on providing the very best education for our girls. They inspire girls through stimulating lessons, vibrant activities, creative resources and a continual focus on our RECIPE for success – resilience, empathy, creativity, initiative, positivity and excellence.



Our teaching techniques

Which are at the cutting edge of modern teaching methods. Working with our sister schools in the Girls’ Day School Trust, we are continually sharing best practice and ensuring our girls receive the most effective lessons and experiences possible.

Our inspiring curriculum

Here at NGHS Junior School there are no stereotypes, no limitations and no barriers to girls achieving their very best. Our expertise in educating girls means we know how to make sure each and every girl is achieving her potential in the best possible environment for her.

For Years 1 to 6 the girls learn from a bespoke NGHS mastery curriculum. It follows the principles of the National Curriculum with the exciting additions of deeper learning, empowering girls and providing opportunities to connect with local and international communities.

In Reception, Years 1 and 2, girls are taught by their class teacher in small class sizes, and they start enjoying specialist teaching for Sport, Computer Science and Music. From Year 3 to 6, girls continue to follow our bespoke mastery curriculum, alongside developing independence and leadership skills.





Our exciting spaces

Designed to deliver the best possible education to girls, they are hugely inspiring, bringing out the best in every single girl.

  • Corridors and classrooms alive with colour and technology
  • Our own library packed with a growing collection of everybody’s favourite children’s books, and more, plus regular visiting authors
  • Music room, always in use and full of joy as girls learn, rehearse and play a variety of instruments from steel pans to ukuleles. They also compose and record their own pieces
  • IT suite equipped with modern computers, which are used alongside individual iPads, to ensure that even our youngest girls join the technological age
  • Outdoor area with climbing opportunities, nature and woodland, mud kitchen and pizza oven.

We also share incredible spaces with the Senior School including the Food Technology Room, Art Studios and the stunning Squire Performing Arts Centre,  where girls can perform in a professional theatre to an auditorium of 250 seats from as early as four years old.





Our many and varied enrichment opportunities

To support pupils’ academic learning, our enrichment (extracurricular) timetable is brimming with opportunities. Our clubs and activities ensure that the girls’ love of learning is really brought to life. They can learn chess and Mandarin, take part in cricket, judo and tag rugby, join the choir or one of several orchestras and bands, and keep developing their skills through Maths, Speech and Drama and Book club.

By providing unique and stretching clubs before school, during break and lunch times and after school, we ensure that all of our pupils find something they love. By inspiring them to take their passions outside of the classroom, we enable them to truly excel in all that they do.

Our RECIPE for success

Our recipe encompasses six key ingredients which bring life-long academic and personal success for our Junior girls through empowering values and attitudes. Resilience, Empathy, Creativity, Initiative, Positivity and Excellence are the qualities we inspire in our girls every day, and they do us proud with the way they embrace these important traits throughout their school lives.



Our excellent care

We have the best team possible here at NGHS to support and care for our girls. Our full-time School Nurse has a background in senior management at Great Ormond Street Hospital. She is exceptionally well trained and absolutely dedicated to supporting our girls’ physical and emotional wellbeing. Our Head of Educational Support is a highly qualified SEN specialist and provides extra assistance to any girl who might need it.

Teachers and Teaching Assistants know each and every girl personally, and all of our staff are trained in matters concerning health, safety and wellbeing. This ensures that all girls receive excellent care and our whole school community remains healthy and well looked after.
