We would love to give a place to everyone who wants to come to NHGS but sadly that isn’t possible.  As of September 2017 we admit 180 pupils per year into Year 7.  These places are awarded strictly in line with the terms of our admissions policy which you can download from this page.

We occasionally have in-year vacancies arising, in which case any appropriate students on our waiting list will be contacted and advised of the relevant procedures.  We also welcome many new students into our Sixth Form in Year 12 each year. Our admissions policy is legally binding on us and we cannot and will not deviate from following its terms.  If, once you have read it, you have any further questions for us, please contact the school and ask for the Admissions Secretary, Mrs Ramsden, or email her at
