Aims and Values

We embrace the values of the GDST: Girls First; Networked, Bold; Principled. To find out more about the ethos of the GDST, please see

In addition, at Northampton High School, we aim to create a stimulating, caring, happy school where girls realise their academic, creative and athletic potential and achieve success at each stage of their education. Curiosity, imagination and enthusiasm for learning are encouraged, along with independent and logical thought. Confidence, self-discipline and the ability to communicate effectively are developed.

The needs of the individual, the school and the community are respected and appreciated. The spiritual, moral, social and cultural development of each girl is nurtured.
