Welcome

A message from our Principal,
Ms C Jarman

I am very pleased to welcome you to the website of Cardinal Newman Catholic School. It is a privilege to lead the wonderful Newman Family.

 

Our core values are Caritas, Excellence and Togetherness– these values mean a great deal to us and are what makes our Catholic Christian community so special!

 

The quality of teaching from our subject experts, combined with an inclusive and individualised pastoral care system, based on the gospel values, supports our students to secure the very best outcomes in their education.

Our School

Here at Cardinal Newman Catholic School we give each student the opportunity, support and challenge to become their personal best and to realise their God-given potential.

We are the largest Catholic School in England and our size allows us to provide something for everyone, both within our curriculum and our exceptionally wide extra-curricular provision.

We combine this breadth of opportunity with carefully tailored academic challenge and a caring Catholic culture of strong, integrated pastoral support and clear behaviour systems. Working together with our families enables us to send out confident, compassionate and independent young people, who are ready for the world ahead of them.

The Newman Way: Caritas, Excellence, Together

We have 50 years' experience of this and we are confident that your child will thrive here.

"Everything is geared to helping each child be who they need to be. Whether it's the lessons, trips or the amazing array of clubs and activities.
 
It's an environment for everyone."
