Newman College is a secondary , voluntary aided school. Pupils are aged 11-16 of mixed gender. At Newman College we cultivate and celebrate our distinct Catholic nature through the promotion of ‘Dignity and Excellence' for all members of our College family.

Newman College is committed to placing faith at its centre, radiating the Gospel values of love, service, courage and reconciliation from the physical and spiritual heart of our learning community.

‘I am a link in a chain, a bond of connection between persons'.

At Newman College we celebrate collectively in our triumphs and we are united in our trials.

The staff and governors of Blessed John Henry Newman RC College will endeavour to ensure that all SEND students achieve their God given potential, are fully included within the college community, are provided with every opportunity to achieve 'dignity and excellence' and make a successful transition to adulthood as confident and successful young people.

When applying for a place, you must complete a Supplementary Application form (as well as the online application).
