Ofsted Outstanding

Newstead Wood School is a highly selective girls’ state secondary school, with a co-educational Sixth Form. The school is heavily oversubscribed. Students here achieve the highest academic standards whilst also benefitting from exceptional pastoral care. Our school badge, with its symbol of the acorn and the motto Fortitudine Crescamus, meaning ‘may we grow in strength’, symbolises the idea of growth, both for the school and for the individual. We are a diverse and inclusive school with a wide catchment area. We pride ourselves on an excellent range of extra-curricular opportunities to complement our academic courses. The vast majority of our students progress to Russell Group Universities at the end of our Sixth Form.  

We are exceptionally proud of our students. They are bright and happy young people who enjoy being at school, each bringing unique talents to our community. Newstead students have freedom and security to be themselves, and many opportunities to follow their interests and aspirations. We know them as individuals and support them to grow as thinking young people and active citizens, ready to take positions of responsibility and leadership on leaving school.

"Pupils thrive here. They are happy and safe in the school's nurturing environment. Behaviour is exemplary. Pupils treat their peers and staff with mutual respect" Ofsted, 2022
