An ‘outstanding’ place to work
John Henry Newman Catholic College is an oversubscribed and high performing 11-19 College. The College serves an area of high economic deprivation and the learning community of Governors, staff and students thrives on the opportunity to truly make a positive difference to the young people we serve.
An opportunity to join our exciting community
John Henry Newman Catholic College strives to be at the forefront of school improvement and innovation and invests heavily in the creation of a learning community where we all have the responsibility to learn from others and to contribute to the professional development of our colleagues. It is through this collaborative culture that together we can break down barriers to learning and support our students to gain the competitive edge over other applicants to leading Universities, prestigious apprenticeships and the subsequent world of work.
