What the school says...
The girls at Newlands never cease to impress with their dedication to their work, extra-curricular activities and service to the community. We are delighted at the way they respond to encouragement and challenges in all aspects of school life in order to become confident and responsible young women equipped with the skills to succeed. We are very pleased that our students attain outstandingly high results in examinations at GCSE and A Level, significantly above the national average, making us the highest attaining state school in the Royal Borough of Windsor and Maidenhead.
Parent partnership is developed through regular reporting on pupil progress and achievement, positive parenting sessions, parents evenings, information evenings, regular surveys to gain parents views on how well we are working with them and their daughters, the Student Planner, letters home to praise and to highlight concerns, the involvement of parent governors in school decision making and telephone contact. We host a regular and lively Parents Forum and have achieved the Leading Parent Partnership Award (LPPA). ...Read more

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
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.
