Newcastle High School for Girls

Newcastle High School for Girls

This project for Girls’ Day School Trust, the UK’s leading network of independent girls’ schools, involved the remodelling and complete refurbishment of the school’s iconic Victorian buildings at Tankerville Terrace as well as the creation of a new 3,625 sq m three-storey building.

The new development hosts a multi-purpose assembly hall and performing arts venue, dining room, fitness suite, state-of-the-art science laboratories and additional classroom spaces. The new development closely follows the merger of Central Newcastle High School and Church High School to create Newcastle High School for Girls and sees the senior school facilities in Jesmond now match the already superb junior school facilities in Sandyford, to create the finest educational environment in the region.

“It is amazing – I find myself praising you as architects every day……. Our school felt welcoming and ours from Day One”

Hilary French – Headmistress

The opening of this development marks a new beginning for Senior School pupils and staff at Newcastle High School for Girls. A lot of hard work has gone into making it the very best environment for teaching and learning across every subject area.
