About us

Newhall is a brand-new, state of the art academy on the Newhall development in Harlow, which is being built with the capacity for 420 children. The Primary Academy will initially have an intake of 60 children. It will then grow year-on-year until it reaches full capacity. The Nursery will have capacity for 56 children, initially starting from the age of 2, but with plans to also open up a baby room in 2019.

The Academy and Nursery now has a Headteacher who is looking to appoint permanent staff to open with and join her in being part of the unique opportunity to build and grow the setting from its infancy. There is no doubt about it, setting up the Academy and Nursery from scratch will take vision, dedication and hard-work, but being part of that exciting and rare journey will be very rewarding to see the Academy and Nursery take shape over the next few years.
