Cardinal Newman Testimonials

A good education for students including their personal development & academic achievement. Ofsted 2013


Attendance & Punctuality


High attenders achieve well.  All students are expected to have 96% attendance or better except in exceptional circumstances.  Please do not take holidays during the school term as this adversely affects your child’s academic achievement.  Penalty Fines for non-attendance are currently £60 or £120 if you do not pay within 28 days.

Notifying the School of Absence

To notify the school of an absence please contact the Attendance Officer on the dedicated absence line 01582 587537


School starts at 8.45am. and we expect all students to be here on time.  We are preparing them for adult life where punctuality is the expectation.  Students who arrive late are given detention.

Please see the Attendance Policy for further information.
