Led by our values
We are unified behind our principles and relentlessly pursue our vision. We lead through
our core values, which act as the pillars of everything we stand for as a school.
Our girls are our focus, the driving force behind everything we do. We encourage each and every girl to be the best that she can be and we have the expertise to equip her to excel. We do not recognise stereotypes of any kind. We embrace each and every individual’s unique talents, skills and ambitions.
We’re paving the way for a future where girls smash stereotypes. There are no limits to what NGHS girls achieve through school and beyond. Regardless of background, gender, race or individual development needs, we empower NGHS girls to carve their own, exciting path in life.
Our girls take risks. They speak up, push themselves, and act with conviction, commitment and confidence. They identify their voices, use them to make a difference in society and face challenges with strength and positivity.
A supportive family
As part of the GDST, our girls are part of a unique and powerful support network of 25 schools and over 70,000 alumnae from a diverse and exciting set of backgrounds, professions and experiences. Every member of the family supports and empowers each other.
Smashing stereotypes for a new style of education
We are in exciting times and NGHS is an exciting place to be. Equipping the female leaders of the future matters now more than ever before. We’re opening doors so girls realise their brilliance in their own unique way – a first class education for the modern world.
An undivided community supporting diversity and inclusion
At NGHS and across our wider GDST family, we are committed to supporting each and every person. As part of this commitment, we are engaged in an important journey to make a real and tangible difference to racial equality.
Our staff are engaged in a series of training programmes to continue to develop our awareness and understanding of issues affecting people of all ethnicities, cultures and backgrounds.
We have a number of clubs and discussion groups for our girls, staff and parent community to discuss experiences relating to race and are working together to learn, develop and make changes.
Across our whole school, from Nursery to Sixth Form, we are reviewing our curriculum, extra curricular opportunities and pastoral care to ensure that our girls are inspired by a wide range of role models, celebrate the diversity of our community and develop an understanding and empathy that goes with a balanced education.
Supported by our GDST family, our whole organisation is committed to anti-racism. Read GDST CEO, Cheryl Gionvanoni’s statement on diversity, inclusion and meaningful change.
