NHGS was established on its present site in 1985. It became a Foundation School in 1999 and a Specialist Science School in 2004. Following its successful inspection in December 2007 it was re-designated for a further three years. It was also designated as a High Performing Specialist School and from April 2009 until July 2012 had Languages as a second specialist focus. The school was nominated by the DCSF as Calderdaleâ€™s lead centre for Gifted and Talented G&T) Education from 2009. NHGS became an Academy on the first of June 2011. We continue to offer all the National Curriculum subjects with a wide range of options in the 14-19 phase that reflects the schoolâ€™s scientific and mathematical expertise and its wider commitment to a broad and balanced education.The schoolâ€™s success is attributable to a very hard working and well-qualified staff (the school has maintained Investors in People accreditation since 1995); a committed and informed governing body; happy and high achieving students; positive and supportive parents.
