End of Term Information

Students finish the term on Friday 20th July at 1pm. Students will be involved in a celebration assembly before departing. It is important that your child still attends so that their attendance record is not affected.

Start of Term Information

We welcome our new Year 7 students on Tuesday 4th September where they will spend the day settling into their new school surroundings. All other students return to school on Wednesday 5th September and will follow their normal school day. Students will receive their new timetables during Form Time. Please make sure you have read the uniform information so that your child is prepared for the new academic year. You can access this by clicking here.

Summer GCSE Results

Year 11 students can collect their results on Thursday 23rd August  between 10am and 11.30am. If you cannot collect your results in person you can nominate someone to collect them on your behalf. You must provide the name of the nominated person/s either in writing to Miss Joanne Williams before the end of the summer term or by email to [email protected] . Your representative will need to provide I.D.

What if you can’t collect?
Alternatively you can provide a stamped self-addressed envelope and results will be sent in the post. Again this must be provided before the end of the summer term. Results will not be released to anyone other than the student without prior written permission from the student.

We are excited to welcome our new Year 7 students to our high school and students have had a busy 2 days familiarising themselves during the 9th and 10th of July. Following the Presentation Evening for parents, we have included the presentation to download and refer to in order to prepare for September. Click the link below to download our transition pack.

In readiness for September, it is important to remind parents and students about school uniform expectations. With this in mind, we have created a document outlining requirements and information.

Uniform Expectations

We are committed to ensuring every child attends regularly and consistently to ensure the very best opportunities of success. We are pleased to welcome a new team that are dedicated to supporting children and families to ensure this happens and overcome any obstacle preventing success. If you have any questions relating to this, please contact Mrs Robinson in school. We also have a dedicated page with supportive information and advice – click here to access this.

On behalf of the children, staff and governors of Newsome High School, I would like to welcome you to our school and website. The website cannot replace direct contact with you but we hope it will act as a foundation for good relations between home and school. We work closely with the community, parents and carers to make sure everyone is part of our journey to continue to raise standards and create a school where everyone counts; where everyone has the chance to succeed, to discover their best self and learn how to lead a life of integrity, respect and happiness. It is vital that everyone in the community has a voice and knows that they are listened to, including pupils, staff and parents and carers. Newsome High School is an aspirational and inclusive school. We believe in the potential of every individual to make exceptional progress from their starting points and to thoroughly enjoy their time at our school. We believe that the wellbeing and happiness of every child is essential and the needs of our children are at the heart of everything we do. Our journey is focused on having very high expectations. It means ensuring children who are successful and strive to achieve their best, know they are valued, believe in themselves and have respect for others. We aim to consistently promote fundamental British values and pupils’ spiritual, moral, social and cultural development.

Mr D Watkin (Headteacher)
