About the School

Newport Girls’ High School offers an all-round education with considerable strengths both inside and beyond the classroom.

Newport Girls’ High School support students academically to achieve their potential, whilst also developing resilience and promoting emotional wellbeing. As a relatively small school, there is a real family-feel to NGHS and a house system affords students the chance to meet peers in other year groups and to participate in healthy competition in a wide range of disciplines.

There is an extra-curricular activity to suit all tastes at NGHS and staff work exceptionally hard to provide these opportunities for students. Newport Girls’ High School also organise a number of key open events during the academic year and welcome visitors to see all that NGHS has to offer.

The curriculum is academically rigorous with all students studying two modern languages in KS3 and separate sciences at GCSE. Some students also study Further Maths as an additional equivalent GCSE. At A-level Newport Girls’ High School offer a full range of subjects to enable progression to university, apprenticeship or employment.

Significant support with UCAS applications is available to all. A pastoral team, comprising both teaching Heads of Year, SENDCO and non-teaching support staff ensure that all students’ individual needs are met and staff work closely with families and primary schools to ensure a smooth transfer from Year 6.

Newport Girls’ High School was visited by Ofsted in October 2019 for a section 8 inspection. They are delighted to have retained their outstanding status as a result of this visit under the revised Ofsted framework.
