Cardinal Newman Catholic School is a large 11-18 Catholic mixed comprehensive school established to serve the many parishes that lie on the coastal strip between Newhaven and Seaford in the east and Shoreham in the west. As such it draws students from West Sussex, East Sussex and the unitary authority of Brighton & Hove.
When students gain a place at Cardinal Newman Catholic School they will be welcomed into a community that prides itself on its care for each individual. Our school mission statement, available on the left of this page, celebrates the uniqueness of each person. We recognise the personal and academic differences within our student body and it is our goal to offer the appropriate level of support and challenge that ensures individual growth and success.
Parents entrust their children to us and it is our task to join in a partnership with the home to raise every child in a secure environment built on Christian principles that prepare every student for the world they will meet as adults. Sound discipline, care, support and academic challenge are our guidelines and we are confident that your child will benefit from her/his time at Cardinal Newman Catholic School. All students are encouraged to contribute towards our further growth.
The School Governors alone determine the enrolment policy of the school and they administer this in accordance with the admissions criteria outlined in this booklet. Application forms are administered by the Local Authority but this is in conjunction with the school and all decisions regarding the allocation of places are made by the Governors.
We welcome any parent wishing to view the school to make an appointment in advance by contacting us.
