NEGS offers a personalised academic program which encourages students to identify and develop their talents and express those talents with confidence.

The intimate classes are taught by well-qualified teachers with a genuine passion for learning.

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.

The beautiful 50 hectare campus has a mix of old and new heritage listed buildings with state of the art Science laboratories, a multi-purpose centre and a national standard Equestrian Centre. NEGS also boasts a range of resources for extra-curricular activities catering for the needs of each and every student.

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.

Most of all, NEGS girls are a part of a close-knit community where all the girls know one another and forge friendships which last a lifetime.
