Welcome to Nottingham Girls' High School

Welcome to Nottingham Girls’ High School, an independent day school for girls in Nottingham and Nottinghamshire. We’re very proud of what we do here, what we provide for girls and what we’ve achieved through this provision for well over 100 years now. It’s a friendly and welcoming place where girls feel secure and supported – the perfect environment for learning. We encourage our girls to think creatively, set themselves high standards and to work hard to achieve their goals.

We know that choosing the right school for your daughter is one of the most important decisions you’ll make as a parent. You want her to leave home happy and enthusiastic in the morning, and return energised and enriched at the end of the day – and so do we. From the onset of school right through to the Sixth Form and beyond, your daughter will receive outstanding support – from her teachers; from all of our superb pastoral and support staff; from current AND former pupils, and of course from the GDST itself. There will always be advice on hand and a friendly face to turn to – we recognise the importance of this.

“We have been continually astounded by the care and dedicated support our girls have received. They leave you and enter the world as confident and able young women having fulfilled their potential” – Parent

We passionately believe, as we have always done, in a girls only education, where your daughter can belong yet be an individual; challenged but not distracted; be herself or anybody she wants to be. We know this approach works as our exam results are among the best in the country, but we believe education for life involves much more. Our school places a big emphasis on the qualities that lead to a happy, successful and fulfilling life: personal and social values, consideration for others, leadership, teamwork, confidence, self-discipline and resourcefulness.

Close links between home and school are really important to us too and we look to maintain close relationships with you throughout your daughter’s time here, involving you wherever possible.

“Excellent communications is high on the agenda and all the technology, which goes alongside traditional methods, is helping tremendously, though it is the strong motivation to make it all work on a personal level that tells” – Good Schools Guide, 2016

By talking to and listening to you, we can ensure your daughter makes the most of her talents and opportunities, and emerges from here a credit to all of us.

Of course, a website can only tell you so much, so why not have a look at our prospectus by clicking on the image, and read what the Good Schools Guide has to say at the link below. Of course we’d be happy to arrange a time for you to visit us – just get in touch. I look forward to welcoming you personally.
