Giving our pupils the Best Start in Life lies at the core of our approach. The Senior School is a blend of academic, pastoral and co-curricular relationships which provide an enjoyable experience of education and equip our pupils for success and happiness in their lives beyond School.

Inspirational teaching, superb educational facilities, and purposeful learning encourage real academic achievement for pupils at Newcastle-under-Lyme School. The rich and challenging curriculum extends throughout the School and ensures that the education on offer is both fun and stimulating.
During Year 7 and 8 pupils follow a broad curriculum, including an introduction to Latin and Classical Civilisation. There is a choice of Modern Language that pupils make upon entry at Year 7. During Year 9, in consultation with parents and teachers, pupils choose nine GCSE and IGCSE courses for Years 10 and 11.
Please pay us a visit to discover for yourself this remarkable place.
You can be assured of a very warm welcome.
