Am currently contemplating a house move and our eldest is about to start primary school so am thinking way ahead of myself. Does anyone know the catchment areas for these two schools? At the moment we are definitely in Newport catchment but not sure about county high. Is county high much better then newport and does anyone have any views on either school not just in terms of academic reputation but the overall view of the school?

There was thread about this a few months ago, which you should find helpful:


Both are good schools, but have different atmospheres. SWCHS is huge, but probably has better facilities and choice of subjects.

SWCHS's sixth form is massive and there's usually no problem getting in, provided GCSE grades are good enough.
