NHEHS provides a particularly friendly, warm and supportive environment where we put the happiness and wellbeing of each girl at the centre of everything we do. 

We want your daughter to be happy and confident, ready to learn and to take advantage of all that life offers, to be comfortable with herself and to be tolerant and supportive of others. Key figures in her pastoral care are her Form Tutor and Head of Year.  The system of pastoral care is overseen by the Deputy Head, Pastoral, and staff work in close partnership with parents feeding back any concerns that we might have.  There is a Learning Needs Co-ordinator for girls with special educational needs, a school nurse and a fully qualified counsellor.   The Head also takes a personal interest in all pupils.

The Personal, Social, Health, Citizenship and Economic Education (PSHCEE) programme allows each year group to tackle issues tailored to their age. Peer support is encouraged throughout the school via the House System as well as through the Big Sister scheme for girls in Year 7 and the Vertical Group network for all girls throughout the school.
