What the school says...

Comment from Good Schools Guide
Was been chewed up by Ofsted in a recent report for not doing well enough with a good bunch of kids.
Comment from school
Having just appointed a new headteacher, NFGS is on the move. Our tradition and pedigree has long been established; in our 425th year we are continuing to shape our young people as the leaders and pioneers of the future and empowering them to reach new heights and achievements. Our students are our biggest asset and our ambassadors; they are at the heart of everything we do.

At Newport we will drive up standards by:
Believing in the individual and the groups we are a part of.
Ensuring learning is at the centre of everything we do.
Never relenting on driving the standard of teaching to new heights.
Sharing our successes and expanding the opportunities for our young people.
Never being ashamed of setting the highest expectations and aspirations for our students and our staff.
Recognising the moral responsibility we all have based on respect, integrity and understanding.
Engaging with our communities at all levels, be it locally, nationally or internationally.

It is an exciting time for the school: we have excellent resources, dedicated and talented staff, wonderful opportunities and, above all, students who exemplify what we stand for and who are being supported and challenged to be the best they can be.

Thank the school

Parents and pupils often have cause to acknowledge the help and support they have received from their schools, for example in helping in the choice of further education or careers. "Say thank you" allows you to send a quick note of appreciation to the school in general or to an individual teacher.


This is a thank you to your school, teacher or careers adviser who helped you to get where you are now.

Please fill in the fields below, which we will transform into a letter of thanks from you to them.

Leave blank if you want to thank the school as a whole

Years you were there

Can be left blank but, if you can, think of a few words that will bring a smile.
