I have no idea and as Newhall is a women's prison and Leeds a men's prison I suppose they are very different. As no one responded to your post maybe you should have a look at threads regarding the differences between men's and women's prison' s. But ultimately there is only you that can make the decision. And finally POELT is held at Leeds.

Hi
I also accepted new hall, i filled all vetting forms and submitted them three days ago.
One Day after I accepted offer of new hall I received another offer for leeds armley!! Not sure what's going on to be honest!!
Why did I receive another offer when I've already accepted one!!

It's probably a case that the offer for Armley was sent before your acceptance of the new hall offer was processed. If you would rather accept the Armley offer I would call sscl to confirm this bit I think u can accept the second offer and then withdraw your application for new hall leaving you with the active application offer for Armley
