Discoveries

Made by girls

Early Years

As our girls start out on their journeys
with us, it is our mission to kindle their
innate curiosity – to give them every
conceivable opportunity
to explore the world around them.

It is why we talk about the important of ‘discovery‘;
because your daughter’s first years should
be full of new experiences,
full of adventures,
full of questions,
full of possibilities
full of discoveries.

Welcome to our Early Years Hub

Creativity, imagination and curiosity are at the heart of the learning in our Early Years Hub.

At Norwich High School for Girls, we foster each child’s unique character and understand that young children develop at different rates. Through providing an enabling environment and a strong partnership between home and school we help our girls make a confident and self assured start to school life.

The dynamic learning environment enables our girls in nursery and reception to follow an individualised programme, ensuring that their enthusiasm for learning is nurtured and their enjoyment of the discoveries they make builds on their natural curiosity enabling them to make rapid and sustained progress. Each week the Early Years girls enjoy a range of opportunities from dance to Forest Schools, music to swimming which allow them to broaden their experience and skills.

Our newly refurbished indoor spaces are light and airy, allowing for plenty of room to take part in role play or lay out a train set, and are flexible enough to be reconfigured quickly to suit different activities. The dynamic learning environment enables our girls to explore and take risks, letting their imagination run wild, as learning flows freely between the inside and outside spaces.

Our exciting new outdoor play area is designed to inspire role play and the playhouses and dens provide a wealth of opportunities to be imaginative. The bespoke wooden structures for sand, water and mud play inspire activities that spark curiosity, stimulate learning and help the girls make sense of their world. From creating magic potions in the lab to producing the sloppiest mud pie worthy of The great British Bake Off, our girls are given room to explore and experiment and the freedom to make discoveries and mistakes. The tarmac track allows the girls to improve their balance on the bikes and scooters and the climbing frame and slide encourage them to be adventurous as they play.
