Welcome to our website!
We had the most fantastic year in 2022-2023 as I embarked on my first Headship and I am very proud indeed to be leading this wonderful school. I am determined to continue to work alongside students, staff, parents, carers and governors to ensure we remain outstanding, and I see outstanding things every day in our classrooms and beyond.
Newlands has been providing high quality 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; as a team, we will work tirelessly to maintain this standard.
I am committed to ensuring that students receive the education, support and opportunities they need to achieve incredible things. They deserve the very best experience possible. Our ethos is based on the 3Cs - the values which underpin everything we do. Courage, Commitment and Compassion are at the heart of our approach to school life and drive our students to ‘set no limits’ on their success. 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, and it is our goal to deliver academic outcomes, as well as rounded, confident young people, regardless of background or special educational need.
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 keep everyone safe and happy. The House System, which flourished last year provides opportunities for students across all ages to come together for events and competitions-all of which help cement a thriving community spirit.
I 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 my PA, Heli Braver.
