It is a privilege to be the Head of such a wonderful school community. Each and every day our students impress me with their humour, enthusiasm and dedication and I leave school every day feeling proud and with a smile on my face. The students at Newstead Wood School are exceptional.
We know that education is not just about what happens in the classroom. The moment you walk through our doors, not only will you be astounded by the academic ability of our students, but you will be blown away by the plethora of opportunities that are on offer to our students.
When you visit Newstead you will soon become aware of the warmth and kindness shown between members of the community. You will also see the passion for learning and the spirit to embrace new opportunities and challenges.
Underpinned by a first class pastoral system, I know we have all the ingredients for an excellent education in its widest sense and that our students are fully equipped to take their place in the world, and to go forward to make the world a better place. Our outstanding support and care for students was recognised in our most recent Ofsted inspection, along with the diverse range of opportunities for enrichment.
I hope you will find the information within our website useful, and that it gives you a good feel for our school, its remarkable students and staff, as well as its achievements, values and ambitions. However, the best way to experience what Newstead Wood School has to offer is to visit us. I very much hope that we will have the opportunity of welcoming you to Newstead in person, but in the meantime please feel free to contact either myself or the school office on any matter.
Mr Alan Blount – Headteacher
