Newland School For Girls is a girls' school situated in Newland, Kingston upon Hull, England.
In 2005, the Hull City Council proposed closing and consolidating Newland School with Hull Trinity House School, but after outcries from both schools, the plan was shelved, and plans for modernising the facilities were begun.
On 28 August 2007, the school celebrated its centenary. The School's unofficial song is "The City Of The Light", an old hymn which has been interpreted as an advanced metaphor for the unity needed to bring together a successful school.[according to whom?] The school's motto "Ad Lucem" ("to the light") is in keeping with this theme.
In 2009, Newland School was listed as part of a £400 million plan to modernise all Hull schools; Newland was said to require "extensive rebuilding work". While the building work was undertaken the school relocated to the Sir Henry Cooper School site on Thorpepark Road, Orchard Park Estate. The school relocated to its original site in September 2013.
