Newcastle upon Tyne Church High School (also known locally as "Church High") is an independent day school for girls in Jesmond, less than a mile north of the city of Newcastle upon Tyne, England. It is the oldest continuously operating girls' school established in the city.

On 29 January 2013 it was announced Church High will merge with the nearby Central Newcastle High School to form Newcastle High School for Girls in 2014.[1][2]


"Church High", as the school is commonly known, was founded in 1885[3] by the Church Schools Company (now known as the United Church Schools Trust). It left the company in the 1920 and has been independent since. It still retains ties with the Diocese of Newcastle and St Nicholas's Cathedral.[4]


Church High is one of the North East's top performing independent schools in GCSEs and A Levels. In the 2010 GCSE league table, it was ranked joint third with Central Newcastle High School out of 100 schools in the North East.[5] 98% of its candidates scored 5 or more A*-C grades that year.[6]
