Our Modern State-of-the-Art Facilities

Newman College is a modern Sixth Form centre with state-of-the-art design.

Lecture Theatre

We have a large lecture theatre which is a fantastic space to reflect, listen and learn. It is also used for school productions, music and social events.

Sixth Form Library

The Sixth Form Library provides a quiet study environment for students to do their course work. It provides:

  • A large collection of reading material, in printed format
  • Access to a wide range of academic journals, books, podcasts and videos in electronic format
  • Computers and printing facility
  • Wifi access which enables students to use their own electronic devices in the library.
  • Careers information and university prospectuses.
  • Research skills sessions

The library is open daily from 8am to 4pm and is staffed by a professional librarian, who can assist students with their queries. We use the Heritage Library Management System. Students can borrow up to 6 items at a time and can renew/request their books online.

Research skill sessions are offered to all students in the Sixth Form, to help them acquire Information Literacy skills. The students work in teams to complete various activities, showing them how to locate relevant material, analyse and evaluate resources, reference material and create bibliographies for their coursework.

The Sixth Form Cafe

The Sixth Form cafe provides the ideal place to meet friends and get involved with Newman Social life.
