View All Profiles

'My two years studying at Isaac Newton have been fantastic. The teaching and support from staff were excellent and teachers regularly went out of their way to provide additional support to those who needed it, in the form of revision sessions at lunch time or help with preparing for university entrance exams like MAT and STEP.

Careers and university support was also great; mock university interviews were arranged and form tutors and subject teachers were always happy to read personal statement drafts, both of which helped to make the whole application process more comfortable. 

Sir Isaac also has all of its lesson resources and homework available for students to see online which makes looking ahead at lessons or catching up on missed content easy so staying on top of work is very manageable.

The city centre location is also ideal, right next  to the library which is a quiet place to work and also only a couple of minutes’ walk away from loads of shops and cafes!'
