Academic Pathways

A personalised academic approach


Academic Pathways

“Our classes are led by educators with a passion for teaching and learning.”

Since 1895, NEGS has maintained a proud tradition of providing outstanding education for day and boarding students from Years 7 to 12.

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

Girls select their courses of study from a balanced curriculum with pathways through Years 7 to 12 in the sciences, humanities, creative arts, languages, agriculture, creative arts and technology.

The small classes are taught by highly-qualified teachers with a genuine passion for learning. NEGS’ flexible approach to learning and a varied curriculum mean girls can choose up to three Additional Studies Units (electives) in Years 9 and 10 with the flexibility to change these electives in Year10.

We offer girls a comprehensive careers program, enhanced leadership opportunities, full membership to IGSSA (Independent Girls’ Schools Sports Association) for competitive sport, extension education events, opportunities to be a part of the wider cultural life of Armidale and opportunities to utilise the University of New England’s extensive resources.

Gifted and talented programs are offered at NEGS. Our senior students are able to choose HSC courses in almost 30 subjects – something few other regional schools can offer.
