Headmaster’s Welcome

As Headmaster, it is my pleasure to introduce you to Newcastle School for Boys and I look forward to welcoming you to the School in the near future.

Since its founding in 2005, Newcastle School for Boys has achieved a great deal and I have been privileged to be part of the School for the majority of its life. The School’s age range has been successfully expanded through the development of a now fully-fledged Senior School and Sixth Form to provide continuous education for boys from age 3 to 18.

Newcastle School for Boys now finds itself as a strong feature of the north east’s educational landscape having established a leading reputation for the exceptional development of its boys both academically and personally.

As a school, we have ambitious plans for the future, whilst remaining a comparatively small school and maintaining an ethos that nurtures and supports boys’ learning, achievement and personal development.

Each boy that becomes part of Newcastle School for Boys is treated as an individual and his needs are catered to as such. We would be happy to welcome you to the School to meet our boys and staff yourself and I look forward to meeting with you to discuss the opportunities open to your son at Newcastle School for Boys.

Careful and data-based target setting to ensure each boy is challenged and stretched

I am happy with NSB and many of our experiences exceed my expectations. Individual members of staff go the extra mile and I hope they are recognised by the school management who also exceed my expectations. Thank you.
