The Curriculum

Right across the school, emphasis is placed on providing an enhanced, extended and demanding curriculum, embedding technology to complement learning at every level and using our senior-school-level facilities to deliver a stimulating education.

Games & The Arts

An inner-city acre of gyms, playgrounds, and massive all-weather pitch gives us the edge. Rugby, football, hockey, cricket, gymnastics, athletics, dance are all flourishing through regular fixtures, tournaments and festivals. Two art studios, a vibrant arts staff, colourful range of media, packed schedule of performances, film festival and joyous music, all brought to life by an acoustically perfect recital hall and large auditorium.

Pastoral Care

The Newton community thrives on open-door communication between parents, children and staff and pride itself on the excellent relationships between the children and their teachers. Pastoral care throughout is key, overseen by a deputy head. All children are encouraged to value the cultural, social, ethnic and religious diversity of our school community and to engage fully with the world in which they are growing up.

Head Teacher’s Philosophy

To provide academic rigour and opportunities for children to develop physically, creatively and spiritually. To ensure that Newton children are well-educated, inquisitive, kind and articulate but, above all, to encourage them to think for, and be, themselves.

Outstanding Characteristics

Bright children, exceptional opportunities. ‘Newton combines a quirky nature and knowledge of families with great space and facilities. All the teachers understand my (very different) children, the management is open to fresh ideas and the school is large enough to accommodate variety.’ – Parent.
