Showing guests around our school has always been a favourite part of my day. It is a joy to introduce our girls, who are eager to tell visitors about the projects that they are working on and about the extra-curricular activities that they participate in. I hear them explain how special it is to be a part of our NWC family and that each young woman is equally valued, respected and supported.
Across all year groups, our girls’ enthusiasm for learning and for always doing their very best is evident, their regard for their teachers and their pride in our facilities is palpable.
NWC is a place of joy, a dynamic and vibrant environment. Whilst we are now offering in person open events and tours, this page will also provide you with the opportunity to virtually tour our school, and meet me, our girls and my Senior Leadership Team.
We believe that strength of character is as important as academic success at NWC and we empower each young women with the tools that she needs to face the world with courage, confidence and ambition. Our girls are intellectual, articulate and happy and I am proud of each and every one of them. Our team of dedicated educators work tirelessly to ignite intellectual curiosity and inspire creative imagination. By applying the most effective learning systems, individual learning programmes and innovative pedagogical techniques, we support, motivate and challenge each student to ensure that she exceeds academic expectations.
I look forward to telling you more about why our school is such a special place for young women to learn and flourish.
