Happy 100th birthday Northampton School for Girls! Northampton School for Girls is celebrating 100 years of educating girls in Northampton. Year long celebrations started back in July with a gala concert featuring students past and present on stage in the Spinney Theatre. There are a range of celebratory events planned for the year. To leave a lasting legacy we are fundraising throughout the year to provide 100 girls in The Gambia with quality education via Northampton Trustee Fund. Please click here for further details Tuesday 22nd September marks 100 years since the school doors first opened. To commemorate this special event, students and staff will be gathering on the school field during the morning to form the letters N, S and G for an aerial photograph. Later in the day, 200 alumni will be joining us at school for a whole school birthday party. All students and staff will gather in the school grounds for a huge picnic, while our guests are treated to an afternoon tea. Music, party games and a whole school rendition of ‘Happy Birthday’ will create a party atmosphere. During the event, which will be attended by the Mayoress of Northampton, the winner of the school’s ‘Great NSG Centenary Bake-Off will be announced and the official renaming of the school’s library will take place. Into the evening, we will welcome many more alumni for an evening reception.
