The Saint John Henry Newman Catholic School
The John Henry Newman School is a 11-18 mixed Catholic comprehensive school in Stevenage. We serve the Catholic community across north Hertfordshire and as far south as Hatfield, with pupils from more than 25 different parishes. Since its foundation in 1987, the school has established a reputation for excellent educational standards combined with unique opportunities to prepare students for a rapidly changing world.
We are a very distinctive living Christian community in which each child and young adult is known and loved for who they are. We want our students to enjoy their education – to be happy, safe and secure and to grow in God’s love so that when they leave the school, they are equipped to change the world and make it a better place.
We are very clear that our ‘Mission’ is to create an environment in which children can discover who they are and what their role in this life is. In the words of our patron, the Blessed John Henry Newman, we believe that “God has created us to do Him some definite service”.
