Combining academic excellence with strong pastoral support and a focus on moral development we inspire, challenge and support each individual girl.

The education of girls lies at the heart of our vision. Academic rigour and excellent exam preparation are a given - girls deserve the opportunity to grow as individuals, assume leadership roles, develop lasting friendships, take risks and excel in an environment that caters for their needs.

Great girls’ schools do not reinforce stereotypes - they give girls the confidence to challenge and subvert them.

Good schools help their pupils to achieve the best possible grades and win places at their chosen universities. Outstanding schools do much more than this – through deep learning, enrichment and extension programmes - they equip their students with the skills required to go on to achieve outstanding careers and rewarding lives. 


Welcome to the GDST Events

Former Heathfield parents are aware of the benefits that being a GDST school brings but former Northwood College parents have not had the opportunity to hear details of the advantages we can now offer our girls, parents and staff, until now!

To address this, we are delighted that the GDST’s CEO, Helen Fraser, and the Director of Innovation and Learning, Dr Kevin Stannard, invite you to join them at Northwood College for Girls for a ‘Welcome to the GDST’ evening on either Tuesday 11 November 2014 or Wednesday 19 November. The event will provide the opportunity to hear more about the Trust, its work and its vision for our school.
