Head’s Welcome

Here at New Heights High School, I am tremendously proud of our young people and my team, and how the trust and respect built between these two groups helps achieve great things.

We were rated as a good school for our most recent Ofsted inspection in 2012 and we continue to build on those foundations, with many outstanding features going forward.

We welcome visitors to our school and feel it is the best way to understand our methods and how we succeed in giving direction to many young people, often from troubled backgrounds, or where another school has failed to gain the best from a student.

The Fair Access Protocol Panel places students with us when they are excluded from their mainstream school – or at risk of permanent exclusion – and it is our mission to make progress with those young people and enable them to be functioning, learning and focused students.

We set the tone of learning positively and we focus on moving forward in life.
