Welcome to Newland School for Girls

Newland School for Girls is a diverse, highly aspirational and rapidly improving school.  We promote traditional values of respect, caring for each other and self-discipline, while celebrating the school’s diverse talents, abilities and cultures. Our students meet and work together in a well-ordered, harmonious and happy community drawn from all cultures and backgrounds across the city. We place a high value on care and nurture to enable all our students to make rapid academic progress and grow into caring and responsible young adults. Our students have a keen appreciation of moral values, a lively sense of purpose and a justified pride in themselves.

We encourage every student to have high aspirations and the ambition to succeed. Newland School for Girls is recognised as the one of the most improved schools in our region in 2015 and exam results in 2016 show a significant improvement in Progress8.

Newland School for Girls is a lovely school to work and learn in. Good standards of dress and behaviour are expected of all our students, and we insist on respectful behaviour and good manners. A broad and balanced experience is a big priority at Newland and so students are encouraged to take part in a variety of activities. Our extra-curricular options offer a wide range of new opportunities outside of the curriculum, together with a strong student leadership programme, all our students are strongly encouraged to play a full part in the life of the school.

We have high levels of attendance and punctuality. Our students are successful, personable and motivated to learn.   In our most recent OFSTED inspection in 2014, behaviour in the school was judged to be good with the inspectors noting “Students’ good behaviour and highly positive attitudes to learning are underpinned by good promotion of spiritual, moral, social and cultural education.”
