Newbold Community School opened in 1991 following the closure of two 11-16 schools. It operates on two sites which are just over half a mile apart. Students in Years 7, 8 and 9 are based at the Lower Site on Newbold Road and students in Years 10 and 11, together with Post-16 students, are accommodated in the Upper School on Highfield Lane. There is no timetabled movement of students between sites. Both sets of school buildings are reasonably well equipped, following major refurbishment when the school opened.
The broad aims of the school are to enable students to:-
acquire knowledge, skills and practical abilities, and the will to use them.
develop inquiring qualities of mind, body and spirit, feeling and imagination.
appreciate human achievements in the arts, the humanities, science, technology and literature and through this to acquire understanding of the social, economic and political order, and a reasoned set of attitudes, values and beliefs. This will help them to prepare for their future lives at home,work,leisure and within the wider community.
develop a sense of self-respect, the capacity to live as independent, self motivated adults and the ability to function as contributive members of co-operative groups.
So if you are energetic, enthusiastic and feel positive about working at Newbold we would love to hear from you.
