Our ethos

Girls first, girls always

Nottingham Girls’ High School provides high quality education for girls within a happy, challenging, supportive and caring environment. A broad and interesting curriculum, enriched by a strong and varied programme of extra-curricular activities, is designed to unlock the full potential of all our students.

Girls thrive best in a single-sex environment and we pride ourselves on giving our students the right tools to excel in the world of work and further education. This requires far more than just academic prowess and we work to nurture these values. We aim to deliver exam success, but also to ensure we provide an environment where our girls can grow into confident, courageous, curious and independent women, inspired to make a difference.

Leading. Learning. Loving it.
