Welcome to Newman Catholic College’s Sixth form

Vision:   

To ensure all pupils are equipped to achieve academic success; NCC sixth form students developed into global citizens well prepared for the next stage of their lives and active members of our school community.

Our Sixth Form is a vibrant, diverse and successful community that consists of 140 young people male and female who have chosen to continue their studies with us at an advanced and intermediate level.  I am proud to say that we have students from all over the world currently studying with us.
