More than just a Sixth Form

Newstead Wood School is an academically selective Sixth Form. We pride ourselves on developing articulate, resilient, confident and independent learners.

Your chosen A level subjects are a large part of your Sixth Form experience, but we also ensure you achieve more than an A*.

  • House System - The House system is an integral part of Newstead Wood School. Each student is allocated to a House and will participate in a variety of school competitions that promote leadership, creativity and collaboration.

  • Duke of Edinburgh’s Award – Newstead is the largest provider of DofE in Bromley. We currently run Bronze, Silver and Gold. The students take part in practice expeditions on the North and South Downs along with the west coast of Scotland for Gold.

  • Subject Societies are run by Sixth Form students. Year 12 and 13 students lead discussions and debates weekly. We currently have 13 societies which run at lunchtime, including Afro-Carribbean, Social Justice, Pride, South Asian, Feminist Soc, Economics, and more.

  • Elective subjects - Our three-year Elective Options Cycle at Newstead embraces enrichment, challenge and independent learning above and beyond the GCSE and A level curriculum. Click here for more information about our Elective subjects.

There are many opportunities to initiate social enterprise projects across the whole School to encourage innovative thinking aligned to our values.
