At New Line Learning Academy, we pride ourselves on providing a supportive and positive environment that inspires our pupils to achieve success. We encourage academic excellence, while nurturing their individual goals and ambitions.

Choosing the right school for your child is one of the most important decisions you will have to make. As Headteacher, I am determined that your child should achieve their full potential. I believe that every pupil should be the best they can be and can achieve their highest ambitions if they believe in themselves, work hard and have access to excellent teaching and support.

Mr P Murphy, Headteacher

We are driven by our ethos

Our ethos is clear; believe and achieve. 




Performing Arts School of Excellence

The Performing Arts department aims to deliver excellent learning that promotes confidence, creativity, and specialist skills. We pride ourselves on providing a range of opportunities for our pupils, both in lessons and outside of the classroom, through extra-curricular clubs and other opportunities. September 2020 sees the start of the ‘NLL School of excellence’ which allows a select number of students to undergo a scholarship programme. This allows them to develop their performing arts skills further, as well as gaining more performance opportunities, leading to qualifications in both years 9 and year 10.
