What Our Students Say

Our students really enjoy studying at Cardinal Newman. Our aim as a college is to provide an environment that is happy, safe and supportive to encourage not only exam success but the development of the whole person.

Here is what our students say about us:

Isabella Raven – Broughton

Studied: A Levels in Religious Studies, Philosophy, English Literature and EPQ

“I felt that coming to Newman would be a big step up from high school but Newman has made the transition much easier. You have a lot more independence when you come to college but the teachers are really supportive and welcoming. They will help you whenever you need it, but also push you to achieve your best. Newman has changed my life!”

Matthew Holden – Holy Cross

Studied: A Levels in Economics, Modern World History, English Literature and Business Studies

“After researching local colleges and attending several open days, I was impressed by Newman’s facilities and friendly atmosphere. Their reputation as a brilliant college and their position in sixth form college league tables also helped me decide that Newman was the right college for me.”

Roisin Heron – St Bede’s Lytham

Studying: A Levels in Economics, Maths, Geography and Fine Art

“What advice would I give to people choosing their College for next year? Come to Newman! There is a really motivating atmosphere here which has helped me to push myself and achieve my best.”

Eloisa Braithwaite – Holy Cross

Studied: A Levels in Maths, Statistics and Accounting

“Coming to Newman was definitely the right decision for me. I’ve had the opportunity to represent the college at National Schools level in the Netball Academy and I have made lifelong friends here which is largely down to the friendly and happy atmosphere and the great socialising areas the campus provides. The teachers are all so supportive and are more than willing to give up their time to help students. It is quite obvious that the students are what is important.”

Kara Milner – Broughton

Studied: A Levels in Textiles, Fine Art and Maths

“I had heard lots of positive things about Cardinal Newman from friends and relatives and I have really enjoyed my time here, especially being part of the Dance Academy. I think it’s important that when you are in Year 11 you don’t just follow your friends. Choose the College and the courses that are right for you.”

Alexandros Andonoiy – Albany Academy

Christine Agbenu – St Michael’s

“Coming to Newman is one of the best choices I have made. I feel supported in all of my learning, as well has having a great time with my friends.”

There are lots of subjects available that you don’t get to study in school and you may really enjoy them!”
