Northwood College for Girls and beyond…

From the moment you become a pupil at Northwood College for Girls you join an inspiring group of women who have headed off in a variety of different directions and on a number of different paths.

As a Northwood College alumna, you remain a valuable part of our community and a role model to many who will follow in your footsteps. We encourage all our former pupils to keep in touch, let us know what you are doing and if you can, offer work experience or speak to our current pupils. If you would like to let us know what you are doing now, please contact our alumnae team:

We are also keen to hear from our recent alumnae, exploring what they have been up to in the years since they left NWC and would love to start a Meet our Alumnae page. If you would like to feature on our NWC Alumnae page do let us know by emailing

Come back and visit your school

We hold events and reunions throughout the year at Northwood. Our Summer event for Alumni will be announced in the weeks following Easter. If you are not able to attend an event, do get in touch and we’ll be delighted to show you around the school another time.

Get back in touch with your classmates

We offer a ‘find a friend’ service to put you back in touch with classmates that you may have lost contact with over the years. If we have their contact details, we’ll send them a message on your behalf asking them to get in touch (we will never directly give out personal contact details).

The GDST Alumnae Network

Not only are you a Northwood College alumna, you also join the GDST Alumnae Network, a unique club of 70,000 members in the UK and around the world.  Being a GDST alumna offers endless opportunities.  From one to one and app based mentoring programmes to business networking, personal development and social events, the network offers a professional community unlike any other.

Supporting us to support girls…

Since 1998, the GDST has provided bursary assistance to almost 6,000 pupils. In 2018-19 alone, 1,165 pupils were supported – this equates to 11% of the students in our fee-paying senior schools, with one in four receiving full bursaries.

However, despite offering far more bursaries and similar assistance than many other independent schools, we could only make 218 new awards for this current academic year in response to 1,335 applications. We do not wish to see talented girls deprived of the chance to join us.

We want to increase the philanthropic support we receive so we can commit to making more awards each and every year. Put simply, the GDST wants to change more lives.

Our Help Girls Learn Without Limits campaign will help us achieve this.

How can you support us?

All donations are processed by the Girls’ Day School Trust and returned to the school in full. Please click here to make an online donation via the GDST website.

Remembering the School in your will is a simple way of supporting future Northwood College girls and ensuring that the school continues to thrive. Whatever its size, a legacy directly benefits the School, its pupils and staff. Please email for more information.

Your generous support will make a real difference to the students. Thank you!

Relationships are excellent throughout the school, which is indeed a happy place: the pupils are very proud of it and feel a strong sense of belonging.
