Newcastle High School for Girls has appointed Amanda Hardie as its new head.

One of 25 schools in the Girls’ Day School Trust, Newcastle High School for Girls is an independent all-through day school for girls aged three to 18, located in Jesmond and Sandyford in the heart of Newcastle upon Tyne.

Hardie has been at Newcastle High School for Girls since its formation in 2014, and prior to that at Church High School since 1997. She has been a long-standing member of the senior leadership team, most recently in the combined role of head of junior school and senior school deputy head academic. Hardie has been acting head of NHSG since September last year.

Hardie said: “Newcastle High is a wonderful community where every pupil is celebrated as an individual and enabled to be the best version of herself, every teacher a guiding force, and every challenge an opportunity to learn and grow. It is a privilege to lead this incredible independent girls’ school and I look forward to continuing to work with the amazing pupils, staff, parents and alumnae as we secure the future of Newcastle High as a beacon for excellence in girls’ education in the region and beyond.”
