What the school says...

Our Junior School is a special place, a place where imagination comes alive, talents are nurtured, friendships are fostered and girls develop a confidence and independence that is recognised by all who meet them.

Academic excellence will always be at the heart of what we stand for but we know that you also want your daughter to feel happy, and enjoy an education which will inspire and excite her, draw out her unique abilities and open her eyes to an exciting world of wonder and discovery.

Girls in our Junior School thrive and whether your daughter joins us in Nursery or at a later stage, you can be assured that she will be in the very best learning environment for girls.

Seconded to Oakfield Infant School as acting head teacher three years later and gained her first headship there in 2000 before moving to Portobello Primary School in Birtley in 2003, where she built an ‘outstanding curriculum’ (Ofsted) and defied demographics by increasing pupil numbers significantly.

Embedded the creative curriculum into the school's teaching, led the logistical conundrum of operating the school in situ through the massive Chapman House refurbishment programme in 2013, followed by preparation for the merger of Newcastle Church High with Central High, opening as Newcastle High School for Girls in 2014.
