Thank you for your interest in Northampton School for Girls. Northampton School for Girls is a single sex community comprehensive for girls aged 11-18. Boys are admitted to the Sixth Form only when Northampton School for Girls offers an appropriate combination of courses for them Post 16 and places are available on these courses.
We believe that a single sex school provides a qualitatively different learning environment for girls and we would hope that the parents of applicants to the school for entry to Year 7 are convinced that a girls’ school is the most appropriate school for their daughter.
