Northampton High has provided outstanding girls’ education since 1878 and is committed to providing the best education possible for girls now and into the future.

The school has a long history of benefiting from philanthropy, with benefactors enabling the school to be established and continuing to enhance girls’ experience throughout the 20th Century, most prominently with the wonderful gift of the new school here in Hardingstone in the 1990s.

The Girls’ Day School Trust is a leading educational charity and, as a GDST school, we work hard to ensure that our fees remain as affordable as possible and that deserving pupils can access bursaries to benefit from a GDST education. We have always been committed to giving bursaries to offer an outstanding education to talented girls from a wide range of backgrounds regardless of their financial circumstances.


At Northampton High School, every girl is the beneficiary of generations who have gone before her. By making a bequest to us, you will help create wonderful opportunities for the talented young women of tomorrow.

The 1878 Society has been created as a way to thank the friends of Northampton High School who have chosen to leave a gift in their Will in support of the school. The generosity of members enables us to give bursaries so that girls continue to benefit from a High School education.
