“Newport Girls' High is an outstanding school that not only achieves exceptionally high academic standards, but also places equal focus on the girls' personal development. One parent commented, 'It feels like an extended family, providing excellent provision for every girl in every area'. As a result, confident, diligent young women develop, equipped to take their place in society.”
