Magnus is a mixed 11-18 Federated Trust Comprehensive School with 1100 students on roll including a Sixth-Form of 130 serving the market town of Newark and surrounding villages. The school has a long tradition dating back to the middle of the 16th Century when a local landowner, Thomas Magnus, bequeathed a very generous sum of money to provide a free grammar school for the town. Although the school has undergone many changes in the intervening period we are still proud to bear his name.
