1. Visit us
We hold a variety of Open Events throughout the year at which you are very welcome to visit the school and find out more about our pioneering education for girls aged 3 to 18.
At our Open Events, you will get the opportunity to tour our beautiful 14 acre site, meet our inspiring staff and find out about what makes our Nursery, Prep School, High School and Sixth Form so special.
If you would prefer, we are very happy to arrange a tour of our wonderful school on a date and time that suits you. We can also prepare a taster day for your daughter as well, so she can start to make new friends and experience what life is really like at Norwich High School for Girls.

3. Taster sessions
Taster sessions can be arranged in the Nursery, Prep School and Senior School to suit you.
We have found our Taster Sessions to be most useful, enabling girls to familiarise themselves with the surroundings and get a very real 'feel' for our school. We hope that your daughter will enjoy this informal and relaxed experience, where she will meet new friends and begin her Norwich High School journey.
Your daughter can either join us on one of our set taster days, to meet with other new girls joining our school, or visit on a date that suits you.
To find out more about our Taster Days, please contact our Registrar on 01603 453 265.
Our School Entrance Assessments are mainly held in January, in preparation for your daughter to join us for the following September. Places are awarded throughout the school on merit and potential.
Assessments are made with every effort to put the girls at their ease so they can relax, perform well and enjoy the experience. Where applications are made after the closing date, and vacancies exist, girls are assessed on an individual basis. Assessments differ for entry to each school:
Girls may join our Nursery from their third birthday. Prior to the offer of a place, your daughter will be invited to an informal play session (lasting about one hour) in the Nursery where we will assess her potential to be happy at Norwich High School.
At 4+, assessment is based on verbal and practical activities undertaken with the Head of the Prep School and at 7+, your daughter will spend a full day with us attending lessons and doing assessments in English, Mathematics and Reasoning.
At 11+, 13+ and 14+, your daughter will sit an entrance assessment in English, Mathematics and Reasoning in the early spring, prior to possible entry. All girls will be interviewed by the Headmistress, who likes to meet each girl in person.
A report will also be requested from your daughter's current school, where applicable.
We admit girls directly to the Sixth Form on the basis of a minimum of six Grade Bs at GCSE, an interview and a report from their current school. Applicants are invited for an interview, usually in the Spring Term, and an offer of a place is conditional on GCSE examination results. Interviews can be held at other times if necessary.
New girls are very welcome to visit our Sixth Form, to tour our state-of-the-art centre, and speak to key members of staff and our students.
5. Offer letters
For any entrance requests which have followed the standard admissions process, offer letters will be posted by the end of February.
Awards of Scholarships and Bursaries will also be confirmed at this stage.
We are happy to accommodate entrance requests at other times in the year, if spaces are available in your required year group. The Registrar will be able to confirm a full schedule of dates.
Once you have received an Offer letter, you will have a specified amount of time to respond.
