NHEHS has a strong academic tradition of which we are proud and to which our staff are wholeheartedly committed. We know that success in public examinations is important to our pupils but this doesn’t prevent us from offering an imaginative curriculum that allows them to explore outside a set syllabus.

Our teachers combine academic rigour with the freedom to think and explore in the classroom and they organise a huge variety of visits, trips and external events to enrich the syllabus in every subject. Their overall aim is to provide a balanced programme which stimulates each girl’s enjoyment of learning, identifies her strengths and interests and keeps her future options open for as long as possible.
