There is a real buzz across the school about learning, the curriculum and the best ways to teach. Pupils at NGHS experience a rich, rewarding and successful education. Pupils' behaviour is consistently exemplary.
Ofsted, October 2019
Choosing a place to study for A-levels is not easy. NGHS is a fairly small girls school, but this allows us to get to know everyone's strengths and weaknesses quickly before offering personalised learning to achieve the best results. And our students achieve very highly with almost 70% of A-levels graded A*-B in 2019. In 2021, around 84% reached this level through teacher assessment. In addition, 40% of the Extended Project entries were graded A* in 2019 and this helps students access top university courses at prestigious institutions. In fact, over 80% of girls went on to their first choice of university last year. NGHS focuses on academic A-level courses; this is what we know best and this is where we succeed. Our Ofsted inspection in October 2019 confirmed that we continue to offer an OUTSTANDING education for young people of Newport, Telford, Wolverhampton, Market Drayton and Stafford.
One of NGHS's key strengths is in our leadership opportunities. As well as the Head Girl team, we have a number of House leadership opportunities, mentoring placements and leadership of clubs and activities for younger pupils. We will support your development and pastoral care with a dedicated Head of Sixth Form, team of tutors and our Sixth Form Wellbeing Officer taking care of your wellbeing.
Our Year 12s enjoy a weekend residential in Liverpool in late September. Students who are in receipt of Free School Meals / Sixth Form Bursary are eligible to join this weekend without charge.
NGHS has it all; excellent results, outstanding pastoral care and leadership chances to maximise your university or apprenticeship application. We have places available now for September 2022 so why not find out more and visit our website for more information? If our Open Evening has passed, just email us and we will arrange a visit for you (drop us a line at NGHS6@nghs.org.uk)
