NHSG TES Schools Awards

NHSG Shortlisted in TES Schools Awards

NHSG has made it to the shortlist for this year’s TES Schools Awards, celebrating educational excellence in the UK.

NHSG is shortlisted for the Independent Senior School of the Year award and is the only North East school to be shortlisted in that category.

The TES Schools Awards recognises the very best teachers and schools from UK state and independent schools, across early years settings, primary and secondary.

A panel of judges, including school leaders and experts, compiled the shortlist. The schools and teachers they chose showcase the best of education across the sector within 21 award categories, covering all areas of school education.

Amanda HardieHead at NHSG, an all-through 3 to 18 all-girl school, said: 

“It is an honour to have the work we are doing here at Newcastle High recognised nationally in this way. It is an incredibly exciting time to be at Newcastle High as we deliver on our vision of empowering future-ready girls who are leaders, trailblazers and world-shapers, paving the way for themselves, and those who come after them.”

NHSG’s submission focused on its three current priorities: academic excellence, growing pupil numbers and innovative curriculum design. The school can demonstrate impact through pupil feedback and consultation schemes. It’s advancing its strategy with a new Academic Leadership Team. The school collaborates with teaching staff to enhance teaching and ensure inspiring learning experiences.

NHSG’s collaboration with regional universities and Sage informs its innovative curriculum design. This ensures that pupils have future-facing skills in tech, including coding, cyber-security, and AI.

NHSG reaches more girls through increased pupil numbers and outreach efforts. This ensures more girls can shape their own paths and positively impact the world.

Jon Severs, Editor of TES Magazine said: 

“Congratulations to all the shortlisted entries – the standard was so high this year despite the challenges schools face. It is crucial that we celebrate excellence and widely share it so that we can properly recognize the fantastic work happening in education.”

The organisers will announce the winners on 21 June. It will be a glittering awards night at the Grosvenor Hotel, Park Lane in London.

This year also marked the first time TES operated this awards programme internationally with the TES Awards for International Schools.
