About Newport Girls' High School
Newport Girls’ High School is a girls' grammar school located in the market town of Newport, Shropshire. With around 620 pupils aged 11-18, the school is a selective academy, with entrance examinations required of any prospective students.
In 2019, the School was successful in gaining £2.3m to expand further under the government's Selective Schools Expansion Fund. An additional 30 pupils per year will join the school at Year 7 from September 2021 and an ambitious building programme (dining room, kitchen, science laboratory, computer suite and four classrooms) will open in November 2021.
The school’s sixth form is also open to students from other local schools. Newport Girls' High School converted to an academy in 2012 and operates under its own trust.
