Year 9

September 2018 sees our Year 9 girls embarking on their GCSE journey – an exciting year ahead!  This year they study compulsory and optional elements which will last for the three years in Key Stage 4.  The compulsory core subjects comprise of: Mathematics, English Language and Literature, Science, Language, Humanity and Physical Education.  In addition they have chosen three options to study which may include: Computer Science, Textiles, Media, Business, Health & Social Care, Dance, Drama, Religion Education.

Throughout this year, we aim to inspire our girls to continue to aim high and dream big so have various events planned for them.  Ace Day is a great day to look forward to where all the Year 9 girls visit Hull university to learn about life at university, what is required to get into university and types of courses available – all to help them aspire to be successful in the future.

NSG Extra-curricular sports:

Tuesdays- Year 9 netball league matches at Kelvin Hall School (4-6pm for selected pupils)

Wednesdays- NSG football club (3.15pm-4.15pm) Year 7-11

Thursdays- NSG netball club (2.15-4.15pm) Year 7-11


We would like to invite all parents and carers of our Year 9 girls to our parents’ evening on Thursday 22nd November 4.30-7.30pm.  This will be the ideal opportunity to find out how the girls have settled into their GCSE subjects and review the achievement so far.
