Headmistress's Welcome


Helen StringerWelcome to our website which provides some impressions of the  uniquely stimulating environment and the busy lives that girls lead at Northampton High School.

Girls at Northampton High School have a zest for learning and for life. Serious about what they do, they have enormous fun doing it.

From their first ballet steps, forays into the sensory garden and exciting science activities in the Junior School to their World Challenge adventures, advanced research projects and Inspiring Futures enterprises in the Sixth Form, they enjoy an unrivalled wealth of opportunities to develop their talents and interests. Stimulated by inspiring teaching and nurtured through superb pastoral care, they grow and thrive as individuals.

Each girl finds her own unique path and, through participation in a vast array of activities - academic, physical, cultural, entrepreneurial and social - she develops a broad portfolio of skills and experiences to add to her excellent qualifications.

Encouraged and guided by experts, she takes her first independent steps towards fulfilling her ambitions, meeting life's challenges and making her contribution to an ever-changing world. Along the way, she gains the self-confidence to make the most of every opportunity and to forge friendships and connections to sustain her in life beyond school.

I very much hope that you will come and visit me, my enthusiastic colleagues and our wonderful pupils and see the school in action.
We look forward to giving you a warm welcome.
