New England Girls' School
Orignally founded in 1895 as an Anglican girls school and located in Armidale, Northern NSW, NEGS provides an educational experience for both boys and girls in Junior School and a tailored learning environment for young women in Senior School, with boarding houses to facilitate the educational needs of students located outside of Armidale.At NEGS ,they believe success is best measured by the way in which they prepare the students to embrace the challenges that await them beyond their school years.They lay the foundation for each of our students to be self-confident, inquisitive, tolerant and positive young women. And they encourage their girls to have independent minds, to pursue their goals and dreams with confidence, creativity and compassion so they can make a difference in the world around them.
The NEGS Junior School has a family atmosphere where parental involvement is encouraged. The school caters for boys and girls from Transition (4-5 year olds) to Year 6. The classes are structured so that each student’s learning style is catered for and each student is strongly supported in his or her learning.The NEGS Senior School offers girls a comprehensive careers program, enhanced leadership opportunities, full membership to IGSSA for competitive sport, extension education events, opportunity to be a part of the wider cultural life of Armidale and opportunities to utilise the University of New England’s extensive resources.NEGS girls receive sound academic results, have outstanding achievements on the sports field and flourish in the arts. However, it is in the development of personal qualities where NEGS really stands out. NEGS girls are accomplished, assertive, kind, happy, vibrant young women ready to embrace the wider world and all it offers.
