Cardinal Newman Testimonials

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


Welcome to Newman Sixth Form

At Newman Sixth we pride ourselves on excellent standards of achievement for all. We are the only Sixth Form in a school setting that uses, not only the highly aspirational ALPS target setting system, but has invested heavily in the accompanying mentoring system. We believe this level of care and support is the main reason for our success. Students balance their academic studies with a wide range of enrichment and social activities fostering each student’s full potential and enabling our students to approach Higher Education or a career after college, with confidence. We very much hope you will visit us and find out more.

Results Day - 23rd August 9am - 11am

CNS Students:

  • We will be in School on results day to discuss any immediate concerns. You MUST check in with us to confirm your place. We will be in the reception. If you confirm choices you will NOT have to come back in for enrolment day if you are a CNS Yr 11. Do not worry if you wish to change subjects, let us know so we can check we have spaces. If you get the minimum entry requirements you have got a place at Newman Sixth.

External Students:

  • All external students that want to attend Newman Sixth, must email their GSCE grades to Mrs Clarke by Monday 27th August. If we do not hear from you, we will assume you are no longer interested and will withdraw your application. If you wish to withdraw your application, please email Mrs Clarke, this is so that we can offer your place to someone who wants to study at Newman Sixth.
