NORWICH HIGH SCHOOL FOR GIRLS AGED 3 TO 18

EXPERTS IN GIRLS’ EDUCATION

At Norwich High School, we believe passionately in putting girls first. 

We give each girl the very best opportunities to find her strengths, explore the whole breadth of subject options, and tailor all that we do around her needs as she develops into a young woman. We are a large enough school to provide rich opportunities, but yet small enough that every girl is known, valued and cared for.

Our girls are just as keen to pursue computing, engineering, and the sciences, as they are the arts, languages and humanities. Innovation is built into our DNA, as we were the very first girls’ school to be founded outside London, and we continue to seek innovation in all that we do.

COMMUNITY MATTERS TO US

Our girls contribute to and benefit from the unique community fostered by staff and students. 

They positively support the lives of others in the school and the wider community; they are outward looking and networked.

We are proud to be part of a larger community too as one of 25 schools within the Girls’ Day School Trust, allowing opportunities for girls to collaborate with 16,000 other students and an alumnae network of over 70,000 women. Notable alumnae who have walked our corridors include author and journalist Raffaela Barker, award-winning actress Olivia Colman CBE and Senior British Diplomat, The Hon Alice Walpole OBE.

What makes Norwich High School really special is the exceptionally strong sense of community; a community which lasts throughout their time here and long after girls have left the school. 

WE ARE AMBITIOUS FOR EVERY GIRL

We are ambitious for every girl, whatever her interests, and we give her a wealth of opportunities to discover new avenues.

Our Inspiring Females programme for example connects bold, innovative and creative women from a range of industries and backgrounds, and provides powerful opportunities for our girls’ voices to shape the future. Recognised nationally for our outstanding work, programme highlights include 2019’s Inspiring Females Summit hosted at Chelsea Football Club, and our 2020 Inspiring Change Makers Online Summit held amidst the UK lockdown and viewed by over 26,000 young women across the UK.

AN EDUCATION THAT IS ABOUT MORE THAN EXAMS

Fostering intellectual curiosity is at the heart of our excellent academic education, but we believe that education is ultimately about more than examinations.

Our extra-curricular offer is broad, with outdoor education, and service and charities programmes a strong feature. We encourage girls to be bold, whether that be a team completing a 30 mile walk in a day, taking part in charitable work or setting a sporting record. 

Step into Norwich High School and you will be blown away by the quality of the creativity you see, from the art and productions in the Prep School to our stunning A Level exhibitions and performances. 

Our girls excel as sportswomen, musicians, actors and in a wide range of other pursuits alongside their academic progression.

A STUNNING SITE WITH EXCEPTIONAL FACILITIES

Our stunning 14 acre site is the perfect space for girls to make the best start in their education.

The buildings, outdoor spaces and facilities have been designed and developed to meet all of our girls’ educational and pastoral needs and includes:

• a 25m indoor swimming pool

• an astro-turf and several tennis courts

• a spacious sports hall and fitness suite

• two renovated school libraries

• a dedicated Music School

• a state-of-the art performing arts centre and outdoor theatre
