High Performance

Welcome to High Performance (HP) 

The school wishes to identify the most able students to allow them to be supported to reach their own personal best.  We do this through our High Performers programme (previously known as Gifted and Talented) which identifies approximately 10% of a year group as HP. It is hoped that through this identification and support programme, pupils will be challenged and pushed to reach their full potential, thus impacting on the numbers of young people moving onto Higher Education. It is also hoped that pupils will achieve significant, measurable improvement in their attainment, aspirations, motivation and self-esteem.


High Performance in the Sixth Form

Many students in the Sixth Form at NHGS are High Performers in a wide variety of subjects. We identify the top 10% in order to provide students with continuity of this process from lower down the school. However, we believe in encouraging High Performers to participate in opportunities throughout the year.  

For more information about High Performance at NHGS, please download the document to the right under Downloads.  You will also find a wide range of links to an array of useful websites to the right as well.
