Hire of Facilities

St Julian’s School is a mixed 11 – 18 community comprehensive school with over 1500 pupils. The School is located on Heather Road, Newport - a short walking distance from the local Caerleon Road shopping area, a 5-minute drive from Newport town centre, the local rail and bus stations and a 2-minute drive from J25 of the M4. 

We are fortunate in having a range of 3 distinct and unique buildings which are both attractive and practical. Whilst the impressive-looking original building is over 70 years old there have been many additions and alterations in recent years. The Jubilee Building houses 4 ICT suites, which have over 150 computer and Mac stations; it is also home to Modern Languages, Welsh and the Learning Support department. It also has two technology areas, and a modern conference room. The remaining technology rooms are contained in an adjacent building, with specialist rooms for the different disciplines, including industrial spec Food Technology facilities. Other departments are based in the main building. Our main halls are excellent in both appearance and size and offer one of the largest performance areas in Newport for concerts and performances. 

The Governing Body of St Julian’s School endorses the Welsh Assembly Government’s guidance regarding community focused schools. It embraces the principle of the school being at the heart of the community and offering its facilities for lifelong learning. The School is aware that it has excellent facilities to offer local businesses, community groups, other schools and Local Authority Services. 

Whilst recognising that its prime purpose is to educate its pupils during the school day, the school also acknowledges that it is able to offer first-class IT, conference, meeting rooms, sports facilities and halls for use outside of normal school hours, at weekends and, in some cases, during the school day. The Governing Body agrees a charging policy annually which ensures it covers its overheads as a minimum when hiring/letting its facilities, with a charge to cover administration and staffing costs where appropriate. The school is happy to consider all requests, subject to availability and appropriateness.
