With the beautiful, and apt, globe by Luke Jerram turning overhead, Year 8 returned to the pre-pandemic venue of University Church of St Mary the Virgin, Oxford for their leavers' concert. It was a heartening celebration of the talents which they have developed during their time at NCS. Well done, all!


Huge thanks to Sir Robert McAlpine for an excellent masterclass. Year 8 learned all about the stages of building design and construction involved in the New College, Oxford Gradel Quadrangles project, the different roles in the construction industry, and designed and built their own towers!

New College School Foundation Stone

On Wednesday 16 March, a memorable moment in the progress of the new Gradel Quad was reached as the Chaplain blessed the foundation stone of the school at a special service.

The school service was attended by pupils, teachers, parents and donors, who heard addresses from the Senior Tutor and the Warden, highlighting the long interconnected history of School and College. The stone will be laid in place by the Warden on Wykeham Day in June.
