Newcastle-under-Lyme School is an independent school in the town of Newcastle-under-Lyme in Staffordshire, England. It came about when the old Newcastle High School (formed 1874)[1] and the Orme Girls' School (formed 1876) were merged.[1]

Present day[edit]

The school nowadays consists of nursery and preparatory departments, a senior school, and a sixth form. It takes both boys and girls from 3–18.
