What makes us special?
Our 100% pass rate for A Levels in 2021 and the fact that 80% of the grades were at A* – A is a true testament to our forward-thinking and innovative approach to learning.
UNPARALLELED CAREER AND FURTHER EDUCATION GUIDANCE, ADVICE AND SUPPORT
A thorough and comprehensive programme includes: university taster courses; lectures; career insight days at companies such as Jaguar, Deloitte and PwC; industry conferences; events facilitated by visiting speakers; workshops on skills required for entering the workplace and guidance on CV compilation, completing application forms and interview preparation.
WE EMPOWER OUR YOUNG WOMEN TO SUCCEED BEYOND SCHOOL
To excel in our rapidly changing world, each girl will need more than examination results alone – we teach the tools and techniques that will enable her to think confidently, think courageously, think ambitiously, think optimistically and think with conviction – equipping her with the necessary skills to face any future challenges with confidence.
WE INSTIL A STRONG MORAL COMPASS
Our varied pastoral elements engender in our girls altruism and a spiritualism that places high value on positive relationships with others; our girls leave us as compassionate individuals who hold respect for others and are mindful of the needs of communities and the environment.
OUTSTANDING PASTORAL CARE AT NORTHWOOD COLLEGE FOR GIRLS
