Curriculum

The curriculum at Newland School for Girls provides our students with the opportunity to achieve academic excellence, to develop an appreciation of culture and cultural diversity and to participate actively in life with a respect for self, the local community, the wider world and the global environment.

Our curriculum is designed to give every student the platform they need to go on to study at college, Sixth Form, or to go into training when they leave school. We work hard to ensure that every child, whatever their ability, achieves their full potential through a broad and balanced curriculum.
