The small sixth form ensures that all of our students individual needs are catered for which in turn ensures each and everyone makes their expected progress.

Our students continue to be successful in their transition from school to employment, apprenticeships and further education and training.

Newman Catholic School seeks to provide a distinctly Catholic education in partnership with parents, families, the local Church and wider community. Each individual is encouraged to be the best person that they can be and is both nurtured and challenged in a safe and secure environment. Mutual respect is at the heart of our school community and Gospel values of peace, justice and reconciliation are of paramount importance.

At Newman Catholic School we pride ourselves on the level of pastoral care our students are offered. Each student, and their individual qualities, is known to us and we are able to identify and react quickly to help our students in every way possible to achieve their full potential. We are renown for going that extra mile and offering first class levels of support. Each Year group has a dedicated Head of Year who works with them from their first day in Year 7 until they finish Year 11. A Student Support Officer is also available throughout the day providing advice and guidance.
