Usually people will do one of two things:

Make the action of the form tag point to the new page directly.  That 
page would take care of any form data processing that needed to happen.


Have the form call itself, then when it's done, use a HEADER tag with 
location: to redirect
header("Location: newpage.php");

Hope that helps.
