Welcome to our school

A Word From The Proprietors

As the Proprietors of Newbury Independent School, we believe that education is a fundamental vehicle for young people from all background and social status to achieve and become effective Citizens. 
 
We embrace British and Christian Values and are committed to being relational, always actively seeking for ways to work with Parents, Guardians and Corporate Parents, involving Child and Adolescent Mental Health Services (CAMHS), Police Community Support Officers (PSCO's), Social Care and other professionals. Our motto is that, even with challenging behaviours, every child can be educated. An African proverbs states that 'It takes a whole village to raise a child.' 
 
Our school was formally opened by the Lord Mayor of Birmingham, Cllr Yvonne Mosquito, on the 20th December 2018. We want to work together with you in educating our children.'

A Word From Our Governors

Pauline Young

The Governors work with the Head and the Proprietors of Newbury School to ensure the school is effectively and efficiently led and managed. The Governing Body do not manage the operational running of the school but help to set the strategic direction supporting the school in ways which include:

1. Ensuring targets for achieving the school's aims and objectives are met

2. Reviewing policies 

3. Monitoring and evaluating the progress of the school, ensuring that the outcome for pupils attending are significantly improved than it would otherwise be

Through clear, open and honest communication, the Governing Body aims to be a 'Critical Friend' providing challenge and holding school leadership to account.
