What the school says...

Newstead Wood School is a hardworking, fun and caring school with a passion for learning, personal development and an outstanding record of achievement. We are exceptionally proud of our students. They are bright and happy young people who enjoy being at school, each bringing unique talents to our community. Supporting their academic studies, we offer a great many extra-curricular activities including fieldwork, exchanges, conferences, lecture programmes, masterclasses and opportunities for leadership, locally, nationally and beyond. Newstead Wood students have freedom and security to be themselves, and many opportunities to follow their interests and aspirations. We know them as individuals and support them to grow as thinking young people and active citizens, ready to take positions of responsibility and leadership on leaving school. We have high expectations and encourage students to be self-motivated so that learning arises naturally through enquiry and research, across different subjects. We know that lively minds come to us well stocked and able to think divergently. Our staff understand very able and gifted students and encourage the appreciation and acceptance of different abilities. Entrance criteria as follows: Must live within 9 mile radius of school. Entrance Exam in September in VR and non VR....Read more

Special Education Needs

This is a highly selective school where students perform to high academic standards. 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.
