Welcome to our school website

I hope it gives you a taste of what a special place Newland St John’s is.

At our academy, children come first, and we do all that we can to help them to meet their full potential. We have a firm focus on developing children’s basic skills, and do this in the context of an exciting, thematic curriculum. Our strong staff team provides a learning environment where children are cared for, make good progress and have high standards of behaviour.

We have close links with our parish church, St John Newland, and are part of Sentamu Academy Learning Trust (SALT), a group of academies working together to improve outcomes for children, under the oversight of the Diocese of York Educational Trust.

If you would like to come and see for yourself what a great place this is, please make an appointment at the office, and we’d love to show you around.
