A brief history

The Newman Holiday Trust

  • The Newman Trust was established in 1981.
  • It is named after Cardinal John Henry Newman (1801-1890), well known for his work for the wellbeing of children everywhere.
  • It began by running a one week summer holiday for children with special needs.
  • The first holiday was held at St Bede's School in Staffordshire, and St Bede's is still one of our venues.
  • We built up to running six holidays at different places around the UK, depending on the availability of venues.
  • We registered voluntarily with OFSTED and for the past three years we have been rated outstanding in all areas.
