Newland School for Girls is a diverse, highly aspirational and academically high achieving school. We are rightly proud of being all-girls, serving and educating young ladies in Hull for over 100 years. We encourage every student to have high aspirations and the ambition to succeed. Newland School for Girls is recognised as the one of the highest achieving schools in Yorkshire in 2018, placed in the top 10% of schools in Hull and placed 12th out of similar schools nationally.
We offer a unique educational experience in the city and girls who are part of our school become part of the strong network of Newland Old Girls, within the city and beyond. We promote the traditional values of respect, care for each other and self-discipline, while celebrating the school’s diverse talents, abilities and cultures. Our students work together in a well-ordered, harmonious and happy community drawn from all cultures and backgrounds across the city.
We place a high value on care and nurture to enable all our students to make rapid academic progress and grow into caring and responsible young adults. Our students have a keen appreciation of moral values, a lively sense of purpose and a justified pride in themselves. They value highly the support they receive from teachers, the challenge they receive in lessons and the tolerance and respect all students have for each other in their school community. We have high levels of attendance and punctuality. Our students are successful, personable and motivated to learn. “Students’ good behaviour and highly positive attitudes to learning are underpinned by good promotion of spiritual, moral, social and cultural education.” We place a high value on the development of character alongside, a student’s ability to achieve excellent examination results.
Progress 8, Attainment 8 and 4+ and 5+ attainment in Maths and English continued to strongly improve year on year, which continues to place us within the top schools in Hull. Nationally our work has been recognised by The Parliamentary Review, the DfE for our work on Character Education and we have presented at PiXL. We are rightly proud of the journey we have been on and continue to work to our values PRIDE ASPIRE EXCELLENCE to ensure that every effort we put in we are striving to be the best we can be, celebrating our successes as we go.
