I am delighted to have been appointed as Headmaster of Newcastle School for Boys. I have spent my entire teaching career in the independent sector – much of it working with boys.

Our school was formed in 2005. Since that time it has grown considerably. We are now an established 3 to 18 school providing an excellent all-round education specifically designed for boys.

Our school aims are very clear. We aim to deliver in a supportive environment:

  • the highest levels of individual academic progress and achievement for all boys; and
  • young men of excellent character

In public exams., we consistently outperform national standards and have established a track record of academic achievement.

However, it doesn’t end there. As important as examination results are, there is much more to an excellent education. Our boys benefit from very strong pastoral care and a full and varied co-curricular programme that enhances their personal development.

Our school is organised across three sites in the heart of Gosforth. Small class sizes at our Nursery and Infants; Junior and Senior sites support the learning and progress of boys at each stage of their education.

We are able to offer a range of scholarships and, subject to criteria, assistance with fees for boys who might otherwise not be able to access our excellent educational provision.

We run a number of open days throughout the year and you are very welcome to visit us at any time to see the bright future we offer boys.

Best wishes

D J Tickner
