Get involved

We are very fortunate to be connected with a large group of Norwich High School for Girls alumnae. Here’s how you could get involved:

Attend an event or a reunion

We are always delighted to welcome past students back in to school; whether you would simply like a tour of the school grounds or to pop in for a cup of tea.

Each year, we hold regular reunions for our alumnae, normally taking place in June or September. We can support small and large events including catering, school tours and table plans. If you would be interested in organising a reunion with us, please contact us by calling 01603 453 265.

Our alumnae are always very welcome to return to any school events, from our Carol Service to Fashion Show, and Norfolk Show tent to our Open Mornings. Please visit our Events page to see what is happening now.

Inspire the next generation

There are several ways you can give back to the school in supporting current students.

This could include becoming a mentor, offering careers support via talks, advice or placement opportunities, or offering university advice covering the quality of education, social life, admissions procedures, facilities and other practicalities from your own university days.

If you would like to join our mentoring scheme, pass on university advice or give any other kind of careers support, please contact


As well as supporting our Bursaries and Assistance Fund, there are multiple ways to support us through fundraising. Whether you pledge a one-off, regular, or legacy gift, ongoing projects requiring support include capital investment amongst our 14 acre grounds including our new Fitness Suite or planned Food Technology provision, and supporting projects like installing new mud kitchens in our Early Years outside space.

One such donation has made a vast difference to our library. We have recently had the pleasure of being in contact with one of our Class of 1958 alumna, Val Sarah. Read more about Val, her donation and her time at school here.

Legacy giving

Remembering Norwich High School for Girls in your will is one of the most personal, and significant ways you can help. The gift of education is perhaps the most precious gift anyone can bestow. Once made, it can never be taken away. It’s the key that unlocks the door to hope.

Your legacy gift may be directed towards a specific area or left without limitations to be allocated wherever it is needed most. Currently, our priority is to provide bursaries to allow more gifted girls, regardless of their background, to benefit from the gift of a Norwich High School for Girls education. However, legacy gifts may also be directed to other areas, including capital developments, learning resources, and extra-curricular activities.

After you have taken care of the people closest to you, please consider leaving a charitable bequest to Norwich High School for Girls in your will to make the gift of education possible for talented girls, regardless of their background.

Legacy gifts often take the form of a specific sum of money, or a proportion of a person’s estate. All legacy gifts, whatever type, or size, play a vital role in our work and will have a transformative impact. If you are thinking about leaving a legacy to Norwich High School for Girls, more details about how you can do it can be accessed at

Norwich High School for Girls is part of The Girls’ Day School Trust, which is a registered charity (no.306893), and by leaving a gift in your will you can also reduce the total tax liability of your estate to your family. All legacies to the GDST are free from capital gains tax and inheritance tax.

The GDST is partnering with Farewill, the UK’s leading online will writing service by offering to prepare a limited number of wills free of charge. This offer is available at Please note, including a gift to Norwich High is not a condition of using the Farewill service without charge.

If you have already made provision in your will for a gift to Norwich High School for Girls, thank you; we would love to know so we can include you in the Minerva Circle, a special society for those who have pledged a legacy to the GDST or a GDST school. Your can get in touch via
