Can you support us?

We are continually striving for EXCELLENCE in everything we do and this term has really proven this. To continue this success within our sports team and become even more EXCELLENT we would love to improve some of the resources that we currently have... right now, we can't afford to keep winning! To be able to do this, we need to raise funds for the PE department...

Support for Sport Event

There are many ways in which businesses can support our Sports Teams at Newman and to find out more about these opportunities, we are hosting a 'Support for Sport' event for companies and individuals to come along and find out more about how to get involved.

Additionally, to be able to secure the best kits for our teams, we need to find sponsors. If you're interested in becoming a sponsor for any of our teams for the next Academic Year, then please contact Lily Glynn - Marketing and Engagement Manager.


Whilst we are still looking for donations for all of our other sports teams at Newman, we would like to say a massive thank you to everyone who donated towards the ESFA National Cup Final for our U18 Boys Football Team. We exceeded our original target, meaning that we are able to provide all travel, hospitality and training to our boys at no cost to them. We are so extremely grateful to everyone who supported the fundraiser and we can't wait to see the boys play in the final at Stoke Football Ground in May - watch this space for updates!
