Student Testimonials

Laura

“With Newman being relatively small, studying here gave me more self-awareness and an opportunity to grow into myself. I was able to take charge of my own learning and had great opportunities such as becoming a chairperson of the academic council and helping to officially open the sixth form building. This developed my confidence and public speaking immensely. The teachers at Newman also provide all the out-of-lesson time and support needed, and coupled with their expertise, it amounts to a great support system.”

Personal Goal Achieved: A-levels: A*, A*, A, A. Going to Imperial College London reading Civil Engineering.

“With a lecture theatre, Sixth Form cafe and library stocked with laptops, Newman College has everything necessary to facilitate a great learning experience. There is a strong sense of community between students and teachers – my history teachers were particularly inspirational and gave me invaluable help in preparing for university interviews. As a Subject Ambassador, I was able to directly affect how our lessons ran, whilst as co-chair of the Debating Society, I learned valuable organisation, leadership and team work skills. The wealth of opportunities is extensive and there is something for everyone. In short, I loved my time at Newman.”

Personal Goal Achieved: A-level grades: A*, A*, A* taking a year out. Applying for University of Oxford to read History.
