What the school says...

A caring school with a passion for learning, Newstead Wood has built an outstanding record of achievement. A high performing specialist school, it offers a great many extra-curricular activities and opportunities for leadership are offered, locally, nationally and beyond. Student co-construction is at the heart of the school's work. As a Specialist Engineering school, Newstead Wood focuses on creativity, problem-solving and thinking skills across the curriculum.

Languages play an important part in extended school activities for the local community, especially with primary partners. Newstead Wood has also secured recognition from the Specialist Schools and Academies Trust as a Gifted and Talented Lead School – in effect a third specialism. Entrance criteria as follows: Must live within 9 mile radius of school. Entrance Exam in September in VR and non VR. Other years - test on all subjects.

Information from the girls' previous schools and our own screening in year 7 identifies any specific learning needs, which can then be addressed either through in-house provision or by the use of external support and guidance. The school has a nurse and a counsellor.
