Norwich High School for Girls (GDST)

Norwich High School for Girls is an award-winning independent day school for girls aged 3 to 18 set across an expansive 14 acre site in central Norwich on leafy Newmarket Road.

Norwich High was ranked as the best Norfolk Independent Secondary School by the Sunday Times Parent Power League 2024, recognising our exceptional educational offering.

We have a long tradition of fostering academic success and a strong record of attaining first choice university places; but we are about more than just exam results. Ensuring each girl is valued and supported is at the heart of what we do. We are immensely proud of everything our students achieve; whether exam results, sporting, musical or creative endeavours or community service and charity work.

Our all-girls school exists to rebalance the odds in your daughter’s favour. We create an environment where girls are free to be themselves and can learn without limits. Our students leave us resilient, passionate, and unapologetic – ready to lead, ready to explore what makes them happy, ready to follow their own paths. What we believe really makes Norwich High School for Girls special is the exceptionally strong sense of community; a community which lasts throughout their time here and long after girls have left the school.

Bursaries & Scholarships

We offer bursaries and scholarships in the Senior School and Sixth Form.

Scholarships are awarded based on an assessment of student merit without reference to family financial circumstances. Scholarships are awarded in recognition of evidenced talent. They exist to recognise distinctive academic ability or special talent in art, performing arts, product design or sport. All scholarships are won in open competition and are awarded solely on merit. The value of scholarship awards vary but generally they are small and are more about the honour of the award than the amount given.

A bursary is a reduction in fees based on an assessment of the merit of a student and the financial circumstances of the family. This is a means-tested award and may be given in addition to a scholarship. Our usual entry point for those looking for a bursary is into Year 7, 9 or 12. Bursaries are open to all prospective students and may, in certain circumstances, be awarded to existing students whose family circumstances change. Bursaries can offer anywhere from 30-100% fee remission and, as far as possible, we aim to focus our support on girls for whom the chance of a Norwich High School for Girls education would be a transformative, life-changing prospect.
