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.

Independent schools frequently offer IGCSEs or other qualifications alongside or as an alternative to GCSE. The DfE does not record performance data for these exams so independent school GCSE data is frequently misleading; parents should check the results with the schools.

Interpreting catchment maps

The maps show in colour where the pupils at a school came from*. Red = most pupils to Blue = fewest.

Where the map is not coloured we have no record in the previous three years of any pupils being admitted from that location based on the options chosen.

For help and explanation of our catchment maps see: Catchment maps explained

Further reading

If there are more applicants to a school than it has places for, who gets in is determined by which applicants best fulfil the admissions criteria.

Admissions criteria are often complicated, and may change from year to year. The best source of information is usually the relevant local authority website, but once you have set your sights on a school it is a good idea to ask them how they see things panning out for the year that you are interested in.

Many schools admit children based on distance from the school or a fixed catchment area. For such schools, the cut-off distance will vary from year to year, especially if the school give priority to siblings, and the pattern will be of a central core with outliers (who will mostly be siblings). Schools that admit on the basis of academic or religious selection will have a much more scattered pattern.

*The coloured areas outlined in black are Census Output Areas. These are made up of a group of neighbouring postcodes, which accounts for their odd shapes. These provide an indication, but not a precise map, of the school’s catchment: always refer to local authority and school websites for precise information.

The 'hotter' the colour the more children have been admitted.
