College Announcements

Cardinal Newman College campus is now closed until further notice.

Students will not be required to attend their lessons or work placements and all teaching and learning move online. This will be done through Microsoft Teams, Moodle and Office 365 and students are asked to follow their timetable as normal. Teachers will be setting work and ‘live’ lessons will be available where appropriate.

Students are also advised to regularly check their emails for updates from their teachers, as well as information from the helpdesk regarding how to access online lessons and resources.

You can download the Microsoft Teams App here >>

For more information about how to join Teams, click here >>

Further updates and important information will be communicated via the College website, so please check regularly for updates here >>

All of our staff will be doing their best to ensure that there is as little impact on students’ learning as possible, and we ask that the Newman Community continues to stand together as we face these uncertain times. Most importantly, please look after yourselves, your families and the wider community.
