The Norwich High difference

So many things make our school a special and unique place.

“Above and beyond, at Norwich High School for Girls, all our students are nurtured, challenged and empowered. We understand each individual student, what they need to flourish and what we can do to support them, both academically and pastorally. This is what we do; engaging, encouraging and enabling each girl to be the very best she can be.”

—Alison Sefton
Head of Norwich High School for Girls

Pastoral care

“Across the school, we prioritise supporting our students and promoting their positive mental health and wellbeing. From extensive peer support on offer including the Big Sister programme, to bespoke PHSE sessions for girls. All pupils can be who they want to be at our school and will be nurtured and supported.”

—Helen Dolding
Deputy Head Pastoral

All through school – from our youngest aged 3 …

“There are never-ending opportunities for our youngest girls to get involved in a broad range of experiences. From the first year of Nursery, we offer specialist teaching in swimming, music, French, dance and forest schools – all on site. It is such a nurturing and caring setting, from our fabulous staff through to the peer support which our older girls give to our youngest.”

… to our oldest in the Sixth Form

“Our Sixth Form really brings the fun factor, and so much warmth in the inclusive and diverse family atmosphere in Lanchester House. The link to the GDST family of schools is such a benefit to our older girls, with a clear pathway towards their future beyond school.”

Discover Sixth Form

“The Prep School is a vibrant place, which exudes warmth. There is such a breadth of subjects and experiences on offer all designed to bring out the best in our girls. We are really proud of our offering – from the amazing outdoor spaces; the Forest School area, our creative provision and through to our STEM facilities.”

Susan Roberts – Head of Prep School and Nursery

“We are confident that the wide range of subjects and co-curricular experiences on offer mean every student will find opportunities to learn new skills, develop their confidence and enjoy their lessons every day. Our ACTIVE approach to learning is about more than exams; we want students to think about how they learn, be curious about what they are learning, and contribute to our community in what they do.”

Mark Braybrook – Deputy Head Academic

“Enrichment encompasses the Norwich High difference, with the societies programme firmly embedded in our culture. Through a love of the outdoors given our incredible green site, to an approach which celebrates outreach and giving back to the community, students have the opportunity to flourish and grow.”
