Welcome to the Northfleet School for Girls website.
It is with a great sense of privilege that I have joined Northfleet School for Girls as Headteacher in September 2014. This school has a long history of delivering a high quality education for students in Northfleet and the future is even more exciting.
Every student is capable of excelling. Our aim is to ensure that all students leave this school surpassing their academic expectations, with a confidence for the future and life skills to succeed in their chosen path.
You will find a broad curriculum which caters for all students’ talents, interests and abilities. We place a strong emphasis on acquiring outstanding literacy and numeracy skills alongside the highest subject grades. An example of our commitment to high achievement is our fast track programme which recognises potential and supports students to achieve A/A* grades at GCSE. There is also a rigorous monitoring programme which is designed to identify where students may need extra assistance to achieve and ensures appropriate actions are taken.
Secondary school should be a place where students are able to flourish in their wider interests. We have an impressive programme of extra-curricular opportunities such as Drama and Musical productions, foreign trips and regional competitions. Students are encouraged to become active members of the school community through a range of initiatives such as our ‘RAD weeks’ and becoming student mentors.
As a co-operative learning trust our school chooses to place an emphasis on the values shown on this page. You will find us a nurturing school which balances the highest expectations of our students with a care and determination to ensure they not only succeed, but enjoy the journey.
