Overview

Where can you become a Viking for the day, scale a mountainside in Iceland AND sing in Cathedrals throughout Europe?

You can do all these things and more at Norwich High School for Girls, the only school in Norfolk dedicated to putting girls (aged 3-18 years) first.

We encourage our students to experience as much as possible during their time with us. Music, sport and drama are all strong features of the school. From tennis, rounders, netball and lacrosse through to dance, drama and gymnastics, the opportunities are broad and varied. Girls can join the wind band or one of more than 20 music groups. In addition, there are up to 30 extra-curricular clubs including rowing, fencing, chess and the Cosmos (science) group. Girls can also go exploring or enter the world or business through the Duke of Edinburgh’s Award and Young Enterprise Schemes.

Academically, a wide range of subjects is available – currently 24 at A level and 20 at GCSE. Future engineers, artists, physicists and politicians all thrive at Norwich High School. Academic results are excellent. 2009 A level results: 90.3% at A-C grades. 2009 GCSE results:91.4% of the grades were A*-B (69.5% A*/A) GCSE A*-C grades: 100% gained 5 or more (including English).
In the recent Inspection Report, pastoral care and the pupils’ personal development continue to be graded ‘outstanding’.

Scholarships (including music scholarships) and bursaries are available in the senior school. For further info, please contact the Admissions Registrar on 01603 251960.
