It is a pleasure to lead and to serve 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 ethos and school aims are very clear. We provide, in a supportive environment, an excellent learning experience for boys aged 3 to 18. Specifically, we aim to:
• 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 quickly established a track record of academic progress and 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 based in the heart of Gosforth at our Junior School - home to boys from Nursery to Year 6 - and our Senior School with its brand new sixth form centre that opened in September 2017.
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 excellent, all-round education we offer boys.
