House Board Games Delight for Austen! 🎲♟🚢🐍

House Board Games report from Communications Captains Erin O, Anita DSB and Ibukun A

On Monday 15th April, the Centenary Hall was filled with students ready at lunchtime to participate in house boardgames. Year sevens took on connect four resulting in a win for Austen. Austen maintained their streak in years eight and nine, with wins in both Dobble and Snakes and Ladders. Amongst our year 10 competitors, Roddam and Seacole boosted their scores with a joint win between all three houses!

Austen had a break in Year 11 as Seacole came out victorious in a nail-biting game of Jenga. Our competitive sixth form students got involved in Chess and Battleships, where Seacole and Austen tied in both games. Overall Austen achieved first place with 6 points, Seacole came second with four, and Roddam took the third place title with 1 point – slow start for Roddam, but House Captain Millie ensures they will get there!

Thank you to everyone who got involved and made it another successful house event!

A Marathon Effort for an Inspiring Cause by the Director of Sport at NGHS! 👊🏃‍♀️💪🔥

On 21st April, Miss Saunders was thrilled to complete the London Marathon raising a fantastic total for the Brain Tumor Charity!
As it was her first (non virtual) marathon attempt, she was delighted to finish in just over 4 and 3/4 hours!

Along with so many others, she also ran to raise money for a worthy cause. To date, she has raised almost £1,400 for 'The Brain Tumor Charity' with the total rising all the time!

We are all so proud of her grit, determination and commitment to her personal achievement but also a wonderful cause.

The website for donations is still open if you feel you would like to contribute and can be found by clicking the following link:

International Women’s Day, Friday 8th March 2024 ❤🙎‍♀️

This year, Newport Girls’ High School is celebrating International Women’s Day with a campaign “inspiring inclusion”, focused on promoting women’s equality by collectively recognising women’s empowerment. The HGT, FemSoc and History Ambassadors have been working hard to promote these ideas, from creating an assembly to share with forms, to adorning the school with themed decorations and inspiring posters.

The history of the day is nothing short of inspirational. Clara Zetkin first proposed the idea in 1910, where participants would press for equality within the patriarchal society in which there were many restrictions to women’s rights. The idea was taken to the Finnish Parliament, and with unanimous approval, the day was founded and honoured for the first time on 19th March 1911, with one million men and women supporting it. Since World War One, the day has been marked annually on the 8th March.

It is evident that this day has already brought about so much positive change for women, with its impact continuing to grow year by year.

For more information on what you can do to support International Women’s Day, please visit:

Inspiring local women…

This is an extract written by Evelyn when she participated in the Historical Association’s Great Debate. It highlights the role of one local woman in the 19th century and the impact she made through her foresight and determination:

‘Imagine, it's the 1800s, a small market town in the West Midlands: Newport, my home. Schooling was perceived as completely unnecessary for women at this time, leading to not only a staggering lack of permanence for schools but many reflecting not a vocation for teaching, but simply a need to find status and income.

However, one woman challenged these expectations when purchasing and becoming principal of a school in Newport in 1898. Her name was Sarah Jane Mills. Student numbers rose from 28 to 62 by 1901, while it had become a centre for the Oxford Local Examinations, providing innumerable new opportunities.
Even further, she set aside a room for reading, allowing young women to further their own education, along with providing archery facilities at a time when female archers were far from common. Teaching them invaluable and limitless life lessons, she provided the means and belief to ensure the strong grounds for our school today: Newport Girls High School."

Evelyn D Year 10

Spotlight on… former student, Ailsa M who left the school in 2013 after studying A Levels in History, English Lit and Art & Design.

She joined the South Wales Police and we are proud to say is the first female forensic video technician in the force. She was recently featured in an article to highlight International Women’s Day and Girls in Science to celebrate the women working in roles related to Science, Technology, Engineering and Mathematics (STEM). Here is an extract from the article:

“As a female in STEM in policing, I love my job. My work involves a fascinating technical science which is continuously evolving as new technologies and software is developed. Our industry can at times be quite male-dominated which I think comes from more boys in school taking up ICT and pursuing that as a career rather than girls. I don’t actually have a scientific background; I have a degree in History which I feel has really set me up well to be able research thoroughly, defend my findings and be able to write reports articulately."

“I would encourage anyone considering a career in forensics to remember that it’s not necessarily out of your reach just because you didn’t study sciences!”

Well done, Ailsa! We hope this inspires some of our current students to develop careers in STEM subjects too!

Over £3,500 pounds raised in Charities Week!

This years three house charities - The Haven Wolverhampton, Birmingham Children's Hospital and Severn Hospice - will be sharing over £3,500 raised by the three houses at NGHS. Roddam, Seacole and Austen put on a fantastic range of activities and events which you can find out all about in the report below by the charity captains.....

"We kicked the week off with a Pajamarama Day, where everyone came in their comfiest and coziest PJs. At lunch, the Staff versus Sixth Form netball was a success, where Roddam reigned victorious, as the teachers continued their losing streak.

Tuesday saw lots of house spirit, with students adding accessories in their house colours to their uniforms. A Valentine's Crafternoon workshop at lunch resulted in some cute and artsy heart-shaped crafts.

On Wednesday students had the opportunity to swap out one item of their uniform for any other item. From hats to jumpers to wellies we really saw it all. Unsurprisingly, however, the fan favourite was clearly the hoodie to replace our blazers. At lunch we saw the staff vs student penalty shoot out which was interesting to say the least…

On Thursday, it was crazy hair day, where we saw some interesting hairstyles. At lunch, it was the Staff versus Student Quiz, where some hyper-realistic portraits of Mr Pointon were drawn, as well as Mrs Dainty walking the catwalk with the latest bin bag fashion.
On Friday we finished what was an amazing week with a mufti-day and Pal-entines deliveries in form time, many with a song sung by the house teams! Some slightly better performances took place at this year's phenomenal House Dance during lunch, with Roddam reigning victorious for the third year in a row. All three Houses put on an incredible performance, which once again shows how impressively our students ensure the House System at NGHS is the best around.

Thank you to everyone for participating and raising over £3500 for our house charities this year: The Haven Wolverhampton, Birmingham Children's Hospital, and Severn Hospice. All money raised will be donated to these charities and we look forward to inviting them into school in the summer term to deliver some thought-provoking assemblies.

Thank you to all our students and staff for their participation and enthusiasm during charities week."

Charities Week ends with a Phenomenal House Dance Competition! 👏😍💃🔥⭐️

Friday saw the end of a fantastic Charities Week here at NGHS. The last event was the hotly anticipated house dance competition with the audience each paying £1 to watch.

Roddam, Austen and Seacole went head to head for bragging rights in a competition that has gone from strength to strength over the last few years. Featuring performances entirely choreographed and performed by the students it didn't disappoint!

With the theme of 'Girl Power', all three houses danced superbly. With gymnastics, floor work, small group and large group elements as well as some outstanding music choices it really was a joy to watch. With such a high level of performance, the final scores reflected just how close the three houses were:

3rd Place - Seacole (41/50) 🥉
2nd Place - Austen (44/50) 🥈
1st Place - Roddam (46/50) 🏅

Well done to all who took part from Years 7 to 13 and especially the house captains who brought it all together so magnificently!
Thursday and Friday also saw a host of other events including a fun quiz in the hall, more tombola's and raffle competitions, accessorise your hair day and a host of other events and activities!

The exact total is not yet known and will be announced after the half term break. Suffice to say, it has been a fantastic effort by all involved.

Check back again in the near future for the precise amount and details of how much the various charities will receive.

NGHS students have a ‘cracking’ day at the home of the codebreakers! 🙈×÷=?±

On Friday 8th December, over 70 Year 11 and 12 students had an amazing day at Bletchley Park. As parts of their math's studies, they learned all about the fascinating and vitally important work that was carried out there during World War 2.

This included learning about Alan Turing and the fabulous ‘Bombe’ machines that were used by the cryptologists to help decipher German encrypted messages.

Arriving at 10.00am, the students had a packed itinerary including guided tour, lunch, exploration time and math's puzzle activities. They even had a chance to use a genuine Enigma Machine as part of their codebreaking activities!

A Fantastic day for all involved and a real glimpse into the past and how important mathematics and cryptography was in the wider efforts of WW2.

'I'm a Teacher, Get Me Out Of Here' raises over £250 for Young Enterprise team! 👋👋💸

Report by Aimee J (Year 12)

In order to raise money for our Young Enterprise project, our team ran a Bush-tucker trial challenge. With a student vs teacher team of brave volunteers, excitement ran high as we saw the likes of Mrs Martin, Mrs Saunders, Mrs Goodall, Mr Heighway, Mr Tolley and Miss Koepke on the teacher team.

The game was simple: finish the food. However this proved a much harder challenge than anticipated, as the participants began by eating a tablespoon of cold beans! With most feeling confident after the first round, we moved on to the next rounds: a spoonful of mayo and then a bite of a chilli! At this point all of the teams were struggling, except Mrs Goodall, who bravely ate another teacher’s food (not giving any names away)!

Next, we presented to them a spoonful of wasabi, and at this point I think everyone’s tongues were on fire, but just to add to the pain, we brought out some spicy crickets! The crowd were enthralled at watching their teachers and friends swallow these crunchy insects! Much to the shock of the spectators, we revealed a tiebreaker, which was to eat a whole raw egg each! Approach to completing this varied, with some participants quickly swallowing it, some whisking it up first and some needing to have a countdown from the eager crowd!

However, with only 3/6 of the teachers, compared to the whole of the student team managing to complete this last challenge, the students were declared the winners, much to the delight of the crowd as cheers chorused through the hall! Overall, it was a great challenge to organise to liven up our lunchtime!

Bake Sale and Staff v Students Volleyball game raise £600! 👏👏🏀🍰⭐

On Friday 17th November, this years two Young Enterprise teams held their first events to raise capital for their imminent product launches. The students v staff volleyball match was a massive success with over 300 students paying £1 each to watch the games!
There were 2 staff teams (led by PE staff Miss Saunders and Mrs Goodall) and one student team comprised of 6th Form students.

To nobody's surprise, the students beat both of the staff teams and revelled in their victory! In the big grudge match between Miss Saunders and Mrs Goodall there was victory for Team Saunders, much to the annoyance of Team Goodall! 😂🙈😂

In the other event on the same day a fantastic bake sale was held outside the hall to capture the incoming crowds for the volleyball matches. A range of cakes, doughnuts, bakes and pastries were on sale being sold by the 6th formers.

It was literally standing room only to buy the cakes and everybody agreed it was a great way to start the weekend with a tasty Friday treat!

Stay tuned for further details of product launches, team name reveals and other events from Young Enterprise 2023.

Under 19s County Netball Report - Ninjas and Panthers both prove their strength at U19 county tournament! 🏀⭐🥈

Ninjas' Report

Wednesday 8th November saw the U19 counties tournament and wow, for Year 13 it was our last county tournament and what a result it was… placing us in the top two to put us through to regionals in January!

Playing (and beating) Haberdashers’ Adams, Thomas Telford, Shrewsbury Girls High, Shrewsbury School, and Oswestry School was no mean feat and I’m so so proud of how we have come together as a team over the last couple of months. An unfortunate loss against current regional title holders and the team ranked 6th nationally was not necessarily unexpected but we didn’t let that deter us and truly gave them a run for their money (which they admitted later).

Despite some nail-biting matches due to some questionable passes and interesting ideas of movement, Wednesday was a true success in our books which is no-doubt down to our new, regular training after school which has helped us gel as a team. Thank you Mrs Martin and Mrs Goodall for all of your help and of course Miss Saunders whose support was first class despite not truly understanding any of the rules. Lucy L (Y13).

Panthers' Report

On November 8th, the Panthers eagerly waited for the county tournament to start. We played 4 intense matches against Shrewsbury school, Concord college, William Brookes and Adams Grammar. We had a brilliant start and won our first three matches; the girls and I worked as a unit and played some brilliant netball.
As we approached our final match against William Brookes, we were unsure what to expect, we won the first half but as we came towards the second half William Brookes crept closer to our lead. Unfortunately, they took the lead by one taking the plate home…big shame. Next time Panthers!
