Thank you for your interest in Northampton School for Girls. Northampton School for Girls is a single-sex community comprehensive for girls aged 11-16. We also offer a mixed Sixth Form provision, in which boys are also admitted and actively encourage them to do so. 

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.
