Welcome to Newman Catholic School. As the head boy and head girls we have many responsibilities within our school community. These include acting as mentors for younger students and involvement in the literacy support scheme, where we undertake paired reading work with younger students in order to help them to further develop their literacy skills. We also represent our students at parents’ evenings, open evenings and in undertaking guided tours for families who are interested in joining our school. We are active members of the Sixth Form Council, the student body that has responsibility for the running of the school’s sixth form, where we organise social events, fundraising and links with the wider Carlisle community. We have completed our university applications and we have been helped greatly throughout our time at Newman by our teachers and the small class sizes that have helped us to strive for academic excellence. We hope that you will enjoy finding out more about our school.
