Founded in 1863, Newington is a thriving, diverse school that provides students with a holistic education.

Newington’s vision is to empower students to develop great hearts, inspired minds, and strong wings, ready to make a positive contribution to society and the future. Our outstanding staff, strong community and rigorous academic, pastoral, and co-curricular programs are instrumental in achieving that goal.

For 160 years, we have offered high-quality education and a diverse co-curricular program to primary and secondary school students across three campuses – Wyvern House Preparatory and our senior campus in Stanmore, and Lindfield Preparatory in Sydney’s northern suburbs. In addition, we have an Early Learning Centre in Stanmore and an emerging NSW Mid-North Coast campus at Eungai Creek that is the home of Newington’s social service immersion and outdoor education programs.

Newington offers both the NSW Higher School Certificate (HSC) and the International Baccalaureate Diploma Programme (IB). We also offer the IB Primary Years Programme (PYP) and the Cambridge IGCSE. These academic pathways give our students an abundance of options and the chance to take their Newington education anywhere in the world.

The rapidly evolving future of work, the future of truth, the future of our planet – even the future of humanity – require us to constantly revaluate how to best equip our students for what lies ahead. Change will be constant in their lives, and so are the foundations set by our vibrant, caring, and courageous culture. Our students will leave our gates with a world class education, strong values, resilience, and character.

The Newington Foundation

The Newington Foundation was established in 1974 to foster a culture of giving within our school community. The Foundation is focused on strengthening the sustainability and diversity of Newington College for the benefit of generations of students. This includes providing financial assistance in support of academic and means-tested scholarships, capital developments and strategic initiatives.

Our scholarships, many of them means-tested and designed to help students who might not otherwise be able to access a Newington education, are sustained through your generous gifts. Many North American benefactors support scholarships for First Nations students, scholarships for students of Tongan heritage, and other scholarships that ensure the continued diversity of our Newington family.

Our teaching and learning environments continue to evolve and adapt as educational practices change – helping our students to remain focused on their future. Your generous support provides the means to maintain and expand facilities that offer our students and teachers flexibility, agency, and connectedness.

A vital component of the success of the Newington are the Gifts in Wills, legacies, annuities, and other planned gifts received from members of our Newington family.
