This is an exciting opportunity for an innovative and inspiring educational leader to join Norwich High School for Girls, a successful and flourishing school in the heart of Norfolk.
Norwich High School is a leading independent day school, providing an outstanding, contemporary, girl-centred education to more than 600 girls aged 3-18. It is located on a stunning 14-acre site, with buildings, outdoor spaces and facilities designed and developed to meet all of the girls’ educational and pastoral needs.
Norwich High School has a long tradition of academic success combined with outstanding sport, music, art, performance and innovative enrichment opportunities. The School pioneered the Inspiring Females series of conferences bringing young girls together with successful women from all walks of life. The Prep School is equally vibrant celebrating the mantra ‘Be Bold, Be Brave, Be Beautiful’.
Norwich High School for Girls is part of The Girls’ Day School Trust, a family of schools where girls learn without limits. Whilst academic excellence is a given, GDST schools also focus on giving girls the confidence and skills to thrive in the modern world.
As a centre of excellence, the GDST provides unrivalled opportunities and resources for students, staff and alumnae, as well as support and training for headteachers. As part of a family of schools, GDST headteachers belong to a dynamic group of heads, allowing them to exchange ideas and best practice.
