Samantha Payne

“I am extremely proud of the outstanding achievements of our students who, despite the challenges of the past year, continued to show resilience and determination, which has been reflected in their success. I feel very privileged to have a job that enables me to be part of this global community. I look forward to welcoming further cohorts of top students to study with us here.”

Graduated with BSc (Hons) Chemistry from the University of Sussex.

Experience: Analytical Chemist at GlaxoSmithKline, 10+ years’ teaching.

While all our teachers will always be happy to help, you’ll also be assigned a Personal Tutor in your first week. They will meet with you one-to-one throughout the year, feed back on your academic progress, and be there for you to ask them anything.

Want extra help with an assignment? Looking for advice on the next steps in your study journey? Any problem, big or small, your Personal Tutor will offer you guidance.

Our teachers are dedicated to your academic success. They will be on-hand to provide a wide range of support, including:

  • Help preparing for university admissions
  • Study skills sessions
  • Non-academic activities such as trips

Our teachers have a long history of supporting our students to achieve top grades. They will make sure you know what you need to do and will give you all the tools and skills to help you get there. You can be confident that we’ll give you the best possible chance of succeeding.

Our students’ results speak for themselves. With years of outstanding grades from Newton alumni, will you take your place among them?
