It has an excellent reputation; it is heavily oversubscribed and there are continuing interest lists for all year groups. The roll is currently approximately1600, including 400 in the Sixth Form. The school has benefitted from considerable investment in its buildings, including a new £3.5 million Sports and Performing block (The Pavilion) and a substantial new build programme to replace our main building and Art block.

The School strives to create the most conducive learning environment which results in our students fulfilling their potential and going out to change the world.

Therefore we have a strong enrichment and wellbeing programme that encompasses every pupils and student and a comprehensive career curriculum. We have been awarded with the Kitemark for emotional health and wellbeing for our work supporting students, their families and staff.

The Saint John Henry Newman Catholic School works towards being a living Christian community where every student is known and valued for their differences and strengths.
