We are also very proud of our students’ success rate at A-Level with a 100% pass rate and 88% at Grades A*-C.

Languages are at the heart of our curriculum: nearly 80% of our students study a language at GCSE. In 2022, 88% of students achieved grades 9-4 in French, German or Spanish. We employ Foreign Language Assistants and are proud to offer A-Level in all three languages.

At Newlands, positive working relationships, team spirit and a collective vision underpin everything that we do. As a result, our staff enjoy outstanding behaviour and incredibly motivated hard-working students. The Senior Leadership Team is visible, approachable and highly supportive. Our values, the 3Cs – Courage, Commitment and Compassion, are what drive us. Respect, collaboration and a desire for there to be no limits set on potential achievement, whatever the starting point, is at the heart of our ethos.

  • An enthusiastic and innovative linguist
  • A team player who will bring fresh ideas and help drive the school forwards

  • Collaborative planning and shared resources
  • Twilight meetings in place of Inset Days, to allow teachers an earlier finish in the summer
  • A wonderful extra-curricular programme, including many trips to encourage community spirit and a sense of belonging

  • A focus on staff wellbeing in a school which recognises the importance of, and allows staff to attend, personal occasions

  • A school where fresh ideas, and a safe, happy environment drive decision making
  • A listening school where the opinions of staff, students, parents and carers really matter
