    • Wonder

      date posted: Monday 21 Jul 2014

      It was wonderful to see our new students and their parents/carers last Tuesday and Wednesday. On that evening each student was given a copy of Wonder by R.J. Palacio. This is a truly great read and will form the basis for some important work which will be undertaken by our new Year 7s in September. In providing this book to all of our new students we want to send out a signal that Cardinal Newman is a reading school which values and promotes reading for pleasure. The benefits to be gained by students are wide ranging. Please click on the link below to see the reading list created by Mr Shears our Subject Leader for English. There are some great books on it – many chosen by young people for young people.

    • Election of a New Chair of Governors

      date posted: Monday 14 Jul 2014

      At the Full Governing Body meeting on Tuesday July 8th Domenica Maxted was unanimously elected as the new Chair of Governors of Cardinal Newman Catholic School. Domenica has been a foundation governor since 2011 and before that she was Chair of Governors at Our Lady of Lourdes Catholic Primary School in Rottingdean. A former pupil of the school she now has two children of her own at Cardinal Newman. As Headteacher I am delighted to have the opportunity to work with such an experienced and committed Chair.
       
      I would also like to take this opportunity to say a big thank you to Charles Wookey, the outgoing Chairman of Governors. Charles has been a foundation governor for the school since 2002. His commitment to the school and the personal and professional support he has provided to me (and my colleagues) has been immense.  He has been Chair of Governors during a challenging period but one which has seen the school record its best ever GCSE results and many other achievements.
       
      I am very grateful to all of our Governors. They are volunteers who undertake significant responsibilities and devote considerable time to their role. If you would like to learn more about our Governors and the role of the Governing Body please go to our website and you will find more details (including biographies of current Governors) under the About Us section.
