Welcome to our Virtual Welcome Event!

We are delighted to welcome you to Northampton High School.

We know that you would like to be meeting each other face to face, however in the meantime we hope that this page gives you the information you need, ready for you to join us in our classrooms in September.

Our team is always on hand to assist with any questions you may have about moving into
Year 7/Upper Third.

We are contactable at nhs.admissions@nhs.gdst.net. We can also put you in touch with the relevant colleagues in school to answer specific queries. We will be happy to discuss any queries over email, phone, or even Zoom or Skype – whichever method you prefer.

We look forward to seeing you soon!

Our Welcome Booklet provides all the information you will need to be ready for September.

The ‘How to arrange…’ document provides all of the contact details to find out more about booking transport to and from school, music lessons, ballet/dance lessons and LAMDA Speech and Drama lessons.

The Confidence and Challenge (or also referred to as COaCH) provides an overview of this programme in which all girls will be involved.

The Transport & Travel Guide gives an indicative overview of our bus routes. These change according to family requirements, therefore are simply an example of the routes and timings. For more information about our transport service go to transport or

One of the highlights of the School calendar is our fantastic Arts Festival season.  In an event that spans over the course of a month, our Arts Festival season showcases our pupils’ talents in the creative and performing arts. From School Plays to Musical Recitals, from our whole school Gym and Dance Extravaganza to Literary workshops featuring famous authors, the Festival has it all, culminating in our eagerly-anticipated Arts Invitational event to bring down the curtain each year.

Please take a look at the footage from our 2019 Festival below.

Thank you so much for visiting us today for our Virtual Welcome Event.

As mentioned in the Welcome film, you will also receive a separate email letting you know which Form Group you will be joining in September.

Your Form Tutors introduce themselves here:

Mrs Pearson, U3N Miss Robinson, U3H Mrs Laubscher, U3S

Remember that you will also be allocated to a Teaching Group,
which will be different to your Form Group,
so you will quickly get to know all of the girls in your year.

We do hope that the above information was useful to you. Should you have any further questions, we will happily assist you in any way we can.

Please get in touch at nhs.admissions@nhs.gdst.net and we will be happy to help you via email, phone, Skype, Zoom, or whichever method is most convenient for you.

We look forward to getting to know you and your daughter
and welcoming you into the Northampton High School family.
