Description of the school

Newport Girls’ is a popular and oversubscribed school. Priority for places in Year 7 goes to Newport pupils; thereafter pupils come from a wide surrounding area. The school became a Maths and Computing specialist school in September 2005. The thriving sixth form admits half of its students from neighbouring schools and collaborates with other providers to broaden curricular choice. The ethos of the school is friendly and welcoming but is one which values high standards in all aspects of school life. Girls’ attainment on entry is well above the national average, as is the socio-economic status of the vast majority.
