St Robert of Newminster – Washington


We strive to meet the academic, moral, physical, social and spiritual needs of all pupils so that they may take their place as caring, committed, aware and self-confident adult members of society.  As a voluntary aided school, we deliver a fully balanced and broadly based curriculum which promotes the spiritual, moral, social and cultural development of our students and prepares them for the opportunities, responsibilities and experiences of adult life.
