The John Henry Newman School is a Roman Catholic Secondary School located in Stevenage in Hertfordshire. In its 2006 OFSTED inspection it was classed as an Outstanding school and the diocesean report found it to be an Outstanding Catholic school.

History

St Michael's College was established in Grove Road, Hitchin next to the site of a new Catholic Church, in 1903 by Fr A Prével from the Society of Saint Edmund. In 1925, the priests from the Order of Augustinians of the Assumption then assumed control of both the Hitchin Catholic Church and the College.St Michael's College was a Catholic Boys' School and the school housed a number of boarding pupils. In 1953 following a General Inspection, the College was granted temporary recognition as an independent grammar school and this was made permanent in 1958.

The expansion of Stevenage New Town during the sixties led to the school being relocated there in 1968. It changed its name to St Michael's School and became a comprehensive.

In 1985, it began the process of merging with St Angela's School for Girls. The merging process completed a few years later and the site of St. Michael's was sold, with the new 'John Henry Newman School' situated on St. Angela's site on Hitchin Road.Its partner school in Germany is the Abtei-Gymnasium in Duisburg.
