Welcome from the Headteacher

I am delighted to welcome you to the Cardinal Newman website which will offer a wealth of information about our vision for the future, the flourishing developments taking shape at our school and the many successes and achievements of our students.

We are proud of our team of dedicated staff who provide an inspiring, structured and supportive learning environment, in which every student is challenged to realise their full potential and encouraged to be ambitious for their futures.

"The Head of School ably supported by a team of very able and committed leaders and managers...have brought about rapid and secure improvement to students' achievement, the quality of teaching and the school's sense of purpose. They provide the school with strong capacity for continued success."

Students have access to a wide range of activities which enhance their educational experiences. During the last academic year students have climbed the Great Wall of China, bathed in the Blue Lagoon of Iceland and indulged in the cultural delights of Paris and Berlin. There are regular theatre trips, visits to museums and galleries along with an array of sporting activities in which they can participate. Students also get the opportunity to represent the school council, contribute to the school newsletter and showcase their talents in the annual school productions. We believe it is imperative to educate the whole child beyond the classroom.

Cardinal Newman High School looks forward to an exciting and promising future, with rapidly improving exam results, extensive opportunities. Embedded within our ethos is our confidence that every student will succeed and leave us fully equipped for the world of work as aspirational, resilient young leaders.

To arrange your personal tour of the school, please contact Mrs Plumb on 01925 635556.

We look forward to welcoming you.
