About New Heights High School

Head’s Welcome

Here at New Heights School, I am tremendously proud of our young people and my team, and how the trust and respect built between these two groups helps achieve great things.

We were rated as a ‘Good’ school for our most recent Ofsted inspection in 2018 and we continue to build on those foundations, with many outstanding features going forward.

We welcome visitors to our school and feel it is the best way to understand our methods and how we succeed in giving direction to many young people, often from troubled backgrounds, or where another school has failed to gain the best from a student.

The Fair Access Protocol Panel places students with us when they are excluded from their mainstream school – or at risk of permanent exclusion – and it is our mission to make progress with those young people and enable them to be functioning, learning and focused students.

At New Heights, we work with key SEMH (social, emotional and mental health) principles which are closely linked to our SMSC (spiritual, moral, social and cultural) work. These principles are:

- We will help you to understand your emotions and help you recognise situations that may ---make you anxious or distressed (Emotions)
- We will help you understand that making mistakes is a key part of learning (Resilience)
- We will help you build more positive relationships with the people around you (Relationships)
- We will provide a safe, kind and understanding school environment where you feel supported to learn (Positive Change)

SMSC is embedded throughout our curriculum describes how we define spiritual, moral and social provision within our school. We believe that in order to develop a fully rounded appreciation of the world around them, students need to experience and engage in a broad base of cultural experiences

We set the tone of learning positively and we focus on moving forward in life.

Executive Headteacher
