Lets Start Exploring

Acting Co-Headteachers' Welcome

As the school enters a new era, we are extremely proud to be taking on the role of Acting Co-Headteachers, and are determined to work alongside students, staff, parents, carers and governors to ensure we remain an outstanding school.

Newlands has been providing high quality girls’ education for over one hundred years. During this time, the school has gone from strength to strength and currently sits in the top 10% of state schools in terms of pupil progress; we will work tirelessly to maintain this standard.

Our role is to ensure that students receive the education, support and opportunities they need to achieve incredible things. They deserve the very best experience possible.  At Newlands, all pupils can expect impressive teaching from well-qualified specialists. Facilities include an indoor swimming pool, sports hall, gym, drama studio, design and technology suite and a dedicated music block. With a broad and balanced curriculum, which stretches and excites, there is always something new and interesting to learn. As parents, we know that the happiness of our children, alongside success - be it academic, sporting or creative - is our top priority. We are committed to nurturing and challenging everyone in the school, by delivering success and fulfilment in the short and long term.

Our expert pastoral team ensures that every student is cared for, with an emphasis on the promotion of wellbeing. Kindness, good humour and politeness characterise everyday life at Newlands and excellent behaviour and positive relationships underpin our school values, which helps keep everyone safe and happy.

As things begin to open up again, we would be delighted to share with you, first hand, all that is great about our fantastic school. Tours will run throughout this academic year. If you wish to book a place, please ring us on 01628 625068 and ask to speak to our P.A., Mrs Liz Bateson.

We look forward to welcoming you and sharing our vision for the future but, most importantly, allowing you to see our teachers and pupils in action. The very best ambassadors of our school.


Mr Matthew Henshaw and Miss Jo Capon 
Acting Co-Headteachers
