Read all about our Alumnae and their involvement and contributions towards Norwich High School for Girls.

Norwich High School for Girls was created by the radical and enterprising people of Norwich.

We remain committed to our founding values, and to our unique community by continuing to celebrate all of our outstanding students after they have left school. 

Our alumnae contribute significantly to school life in many ways from careers support for current students, supporting a student with a bursary fund, helping fundraise for capital projects, coming back for one of our annual events or a reunion, or representing our school as a community ambassador.
