Welcome to Newland School for Girls

Our Year 6 Transition Days are Monday 15th July 2019, Tuesday 16th July 2019 and Wednesday 17th July 2019 – we can’t wait to meet you!!


Newland School for Girls is a harmoniously 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 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 resilient 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 2017 and in 2018 has yet again seen a huge improvement in results.  We are now placed in the top third of all schools in the city.

Excellent standards of dress and behaviour are expected of all our students, and we insist on respectful behaviour and good manners at all times. A broad and balanced experience is a big priority at Newland and so students are encouraged to take part in a variety of activities, take on a leadership role within our student leadership programme;  all our students are strongly encouraged to play a full part in the life of the school.

Newland School for Girls is a lovely school to work and learn in. Our students are successful, personable and motivated to learn.   We hope you get a sense of our Pride, Aspire, Excellence – it is evident in everything we do!

The attainment of students in their Best 8 subjects has increased year on year at Newland School for Girls.


There has been a continual increase in the progress made by our students over the last 5 years with another rapid increase seen in the progress made in 2018.
