Northfleet School for Girls is a vibrant and caring school on a very exciting journey. We have been growing rapidly (46% increase in student roll since 2017) and we believe this is down to the following key areas:

  • A dedicated staffing team who really care
  • A proven track record of year-on-year improvements in all areas, including exam results, destinations and attendance (pre-covid)

In March 2022 we received a very positive Ofsted inspection. Below are some of the observations made during the inspection: 

"Pupils are polite, respectful, courteous and considerate”

“Relationships between pupils and their teachers are caring and supportive”

“Staff turnover is low because teachers enjoy working at the school”

The responses to the staff survey show that staff are proud to be part of the school”
