The Newman Catholic Collegiate

“By faith only do we know our position in the world, our circumstances, our rights and privileges, our fortunes, our parents, our brothers and sisters, our age, our mortality”  John Henry Newman

We have an exceptionally strong tradition of working with our eight partner primary schools. Working together for the sake of all our students, we share the same high standards of education based on the founding principles of compassion and respect.

In September 2013, our family of schools formalised its successful relationships by joining together to form the Newman Catholic Collegiate.

Together with St Margaret Ward, the Newman Catholic Collegiate includes:
St John the Evangelist’s, Kidsgrove
Our Lady of Grace, Biddulph
St Mary’s, Norton
St Peter’s, Cobridge
St Wilfrid’s, Tunstall
St George & St Martin’s, Birches Head
St Joseph’s, Goldenhill
Our Lady & St Benedict’s, Abbey Hulton

St Margaret Ward takes every opportunity to work with the pupils within our partner schools as we recognise the importance of providing a continuum of Catholic education from a child’s early years, all the way through to post-16 education.

Activities across our family of schools include pupils in years 4, 5 and 6 attending masses celebrated at St Margaret Ward. We organise a wide range of sporting and music outreach activities both within the primaries and on our school site. Children in years 5 and 6 regularly attend lessons in preparation for year 7 and are frequent visitors as audiences for our school shows. This extensive range of activities, together with our carefully designed transition programme, ensures smooth progress from primary to secondary education and offers children and parents security and consistency.

In addition to children from our partner primary schools, pupils from all other primary schools are welcome to apply for places at St Margaret Ward. All children are admitted strictly according to our admissions criteria. Please refer to our admissions policy for further details.
