What people say about our college

My daughter flourished at Newhaven College. She discovered she could sing, dance, and excels at woodcraft, all things we had no history of in our family before. She’s heading to learn design at RMIT, and we couldn’t be prouder.
On our first visit, we were very impressed by the look of the school and its layout. And we were struck by the warmth and friendliness of the team we met.
My son is in Year 12, and he's thinking about going to university. I'd never have thought he'd think about university, but a few teachers encouraged him. They built his confidence. He now realises he's capable. Thanks to support and feedback, he's grown a sense of self-belief.
