What says..

Girls are encouraged to choose the options that really interest them, even if that means contortions with the timetable and at A level, even more so. ’Whether it is further maths, Greek or art we want the girls to follow their own path’.

What the school says...

We encourage our students to experience as much as possible during their time with us by developing intellectual curiosity and a bold, confident approach to tackling both academic and personal challenges. Music, sport and drama are all strong features of the school. Choosing from more than 20 music ensembles to hockey, tennis, netball, gymnastics and lacrosse through to a variety of dance and drama groups the opportunities are broad and varied. In addition, there are up to 30 co-curricular clubs including Debating, Rowing, Textiles, Fencing, Amnesty, Robotics, Chess and the Cosmos (Science) Group. Girls can also go exploring or enter the world of business through the Duke of Edinburghs 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. We are proud of both the depth and breadth of our curriculum, and of our girls who achieve excellent academic results while enthusiastically engaging in the breadth of opportunities available to them which range from a vast array of cultural exchanges and voluntary service activities to timetabled My Time sessions and an innovative curriculum across the whole school - Early Years to Sixth Form.

Scholarships (including Music, Drama, Art and Design and Sport Scholarships) and bursaries are available in the senior school. Our Registrar will be pleased to give any further information you require, and can be contacted on 01603 453265.

Independent schools frequently offer IGCSEs or other qualifications alongside or as an alternative to GCSE. The DfE does not record performance data for these exams so independent school GCSE data is frequently misleading; parents should check the results with the schools.
