equipped with the tools to aim high and dream big.

from the start is incomparable to anywhere else.
Successful girls are happy girls

we have the very best tools for an exceptional education.
Proud to be a GDST school
We use our knowledge to get the best out of our students, with research-led, tailor-made teaching methods and a commitment to arming girls with key life skills to excel in life.
Facilities to help them thrive
From the latest in classroom learning technology and an incredible performing arts centre, all the way through to a fitness suite, and our own woodland area, we set the stage for greatness.
Putting wellbeing first
We prioritise a tailored support system that helps build well-rounded individuals who are confident, happy and successful.
An education that goes beyond the classroom
Many of our clubs run at lunch time when the school is buzzing with Music, Sport, Art and even dissection.
for every girl
for every girl
Our girls have access to opportunities that go beyond their wildest dreams. No distance is too far when it comes to opening doors – quite literally. We’ve travelled to mountains, ice caps and bustling cities. The sky really is the limit.
One of the most important parts of our education is enabling girls to lead. Experts in girls, we know that leadership is a habit. Girls taking up leadership positions in many different ways here and by the time they reach the workplace, they are confident and carry this on into exciting leadership positions in their chosen careers.
There are no gender stereotypes and no limits at NGHS. Girls excel in what they’re best at with nothing holding them back. It’s no wonder generations of NGHS girls have gone on to achieve extraordinary things.
Preparing girls for the future they deserve
In rapidly changing times, we’re always looking ahead. We’re dedicated to equipping our girls to take on the world – all its opportunities and challenges and diversity. Wherever they want to go, we make sure they have the skills, confidence and resilience to get there, in addition to a set of fantastic exam results.
Pushing boundaries for independent girls’ schools
We’ve never been afraid to push boundaries and strive for more, and it’s undoubtedly raised an eyebrow or two over the years. In 1881 we established a school football club, which subsequently became a highly popular activity despite being deemed ‘too dangerous’ for girls! We still have an incredible football team today, and won the Nottingham Post’s Sports Awards in 2018.
We are the cutting edge of education and are determined to set up each and every NGHS girl for a truly extraordinary future.
A GDST school
We’re proud to be part of the GDST network. No other school in the region can offer young girls all the amazing benefits of being part of such a unique and forward-thinking organisation, and we share the belief that girls really do learn best when they learn without limits.

Shaping the future
Part of the inspirational Girls’ Day School Trust, we’re proud to have been educating brilliant girls for nearly 145 years. Our rich history is peppered with inspiring moments that form the essence of who we are: progressive, creative, different. We’re committed to carrying that torch long into the future, so we can continue to empower girls and women for years to come.
We have made significant strides in promoting not just physical activity for girls, but also Maths and the Sciences. There is nothing NGHS girls can’t do, and we’re so proud to see them entering the world with their can do attitudes.
The future is an incredibly exciting place, and we are driven by our passion to empower girls to exceed.
