Last year, 6 scholarships were awarded for excellence in music, sport and academic merit.

NPS children are clearly in demand with 47 independent Senior School places being offered to our 21 children.

RGS continues to be a popular choice, with the majority of pupils continuing their education there and 70% of those offered places accepting them.

Our pupils achieved an incredible 100% success rate at Dame Allan's. All children who sat for NHSG or NSB were offered places, with over 29% of the year group taking up these places. 

Places have been offered in prestigious schools outside of Newcastle, including Durham School, Bootham (York), Withington Girls’ School and St Mary’s, Ascot (ranked 8th in the country by the Sunday Times, 2019).

From their achievements, it is clear that the children have taken full advantage of the specialist primary education we provide at NPS and we are delighted that they are all approaching the next step in their school careers with confidence.
