I am proud to be the Principal of Ormiston North East Wolverhampton Academy (NEWA) and since starting in September 2019 we have made incredible progress. The standards and expectations that we hold ourselves to, have been embraced by our students and have transformed the culture and ethos of our Academy.

This is a place of excellence where students are welcomed, supported and cared for. It’s a place where we develop our values of pride, endeavour and collaboration with students from the moment they join us and throughout their journey with us.  Such is the level of our transformation, more students are joining us than ever before.  


We believe in a balanced and broad curriculum in which students excel. We operate a calm, quiet and ordered environment where children can learn safely and are given the best opportunity to realise their potential. NEWA students are happy, successful and love being at the Academy. This is a home for learning and one in which our expectations are shown, shared and demanded.

We are incredibly open and encourage our community to see us in action, contact reception to book a tour during the school day.  You will meet students who wear a uniform that is bold and aspirant, who revise daily and who are polite, kind and mindful.  

We look forward to meeting you.

Best wishes to you all,

Mr Craig Cooling
