We are in the process of establishing an Alumnae database/association, to serve the "Old Girls" of Norman Way CCHSG.  We hope that you also would like to join the Alumnae.  If you would, then please complete the Previous Pupil Form.  We need your contact details, latest address, telephone numbers and e-mail address and a brief update on what's been happening to you since you left us. One of our members is in the process of constructing a web page, which will be linked to our school website and which will allow "Old Girls" to catch up with ex-classmates and friends from the "good old days"!:
