From the Principal


Thank you for your interest in New College.

The College has an established reputation for very strong exam performance and you will know that we are passionate about sustaining and improving teaching and learning so that every student’s results represent their best possible achievement.

Because we are specialists in post-16 qualifications we are able to offer an extensive choice of academic subjects and a diverse range of wider-college activities including Performing Arts, Music, Sport, Foreign Exchange and challenging global expeditions.

Many of our students, past and present, speak of their affection for NEW College as a very special place in which students are happy and supported and equally challenged to achieve their very best.We cannot emphasise enough that your involvement as parents, working in partnership with our staff, is vitally important and we welcome your input.

If we have any concerns about your son/daughter’s progress, achievement, behaviour or attendance their Progress Tutor will certainly wish to contact you and where necessary arrange a meeting. Likewise, if you have any questions or queries, please do not hesitate to make contact directly with your son/daughter’s Personal Tutor either by telephone or email.

In late September you will be invited to attend a Welcome Evening for new parents. This is an important opportunity for you to find out how quickly your son/daughter has settled in and find out much more about the college. There is also a Consultation Evening where parents are invited into college to meet with their son/daughters subject teachers.

The College website and social media feeds are ways in which we keep you up to date with the happenings in college.

If at anytime you feel unhappy with anything regarding College and your son/daughter’s Progress Tutor cannot deal with your complaint to your satisfaction, please contact a member of the Senior Leadership Team who will contact you and try to resolve the situation.

We look forward to seeing you soon.
