At Newlands Girls’ School we operate a biometric recognition system in our canteen. This allows the till registers to recognise pupils using finger imaging, greatly improving security and efficiency. The benefits include:
- Improved security when processing financial transactions in the school
- No cost to parents and administration time to replace lost or forgotten cards
- Reduction in opportunities for pupils using each other’s or lost/stolen cards or pin numbers
- Pupils do not have to remember a pin or to bring a card
- Reduction in queueing time
For further information, please refer to the two documents below:

Development for the Future Fund
The Development for the Future Fund has been established to enable us, as a school, to fund projects which we might not otherwise have the capacity to realise. Already we have been able to develop the outside and underused quadrangle into a light and airy Sixth Form study area, and stylishly refurbish a science lab. We need your help, however, in a climate of shrinking funding, parental support is more valuable than ever. We continually strive to improve resources for our pupils, and the next aim is to develop and update a further 29 classrooms. We would like you to consider making a monthly donation of either £10, £20 or £30 to help us on this journey. Thank you, in advance, for any assistance you can give.
