Newton Preparatory School Mission Statement

First-time visitors to the school are invariably impressed by the scale and range of our facilities and by the wide open outdoor spaces enjoyed by the children. 

Newton Prep occupies an early 20th-century elementary school building, which has been extensively remodelled internally, and behind which stands several modern extensions containing

  • classrooms, each with interactive whiteboards and IT connectivity
  • year-group learning pods for lower school children
  • large dining hall and kitchen, with large balcony overlooking the All-Weather Pitch
  • two gymnasiums and a double-height sports hall as well as three sprung-floor dance studios
  • a 300-seat auditorium and a 120-seat recital hall (and recording studio), with new music rooms and a music technology studio.

The top floor of the Edwardian building provides one large general-purpose space as well as two art studios. Newton Prep has two large outdoor spaces for PE/Games and free play: behind the school, an all-weather pitch and, in front, a large soft-surface playground. The school also has a large garden divided into a wildlife area and an activity area with a pirate boat. 

The Auditorium

Providing a superb space for assemblies, plays, concerts and evening meetings, with full lighting, projection and audio facilities, the split-level auditorium seats some 300 children and adults.

  

The Recital Hall

Our newest large space, added as part of our bespoke music wing, the Recital Hall doubles up as a more intimate performance space (seats 120) and as a professional-quality recording studio. 

  

The Library

Fully refurbished and enlarged in 2009, this beautiful and inviting space is stocked with over 16,000 books and overseen by a full-time librarian. Children can access the catalogue by computer. The Library is used by all children from Nursery to Year 8 and is constantly quoted by visiting authors as the best primary school library they have seen.

  

IT Suites

Adjacent to the Library are three air-conditioned ICT rooms each equipped with fully networked PCs for classes of twenty children and an interactive whiteboard. The ICT rooms are increasingly being used as an invaluable teaching resource across the full range of the curriculum.

 

Science Laboratories

Our three cutting-edge science laboratories demonstrate our hands-on "do, not just study" approach to scientific discovery. Each laboratory is equipped with a collegiate-style area of tiered seating for demonstration and teaching purposes as well as modular benches for practical work.

 

The School Garden

Once a city farm, the school garden has been divided to create space for small allotments for the children to cultivate themselves, a lawn area as well as an orchard.

Sports Facilities

Outdoor

The 70m x 40m all-weather, floodlit astroturf is used by children of all ages for PE, games and as a recreational space in break times. Measuring nearly an acre, the astroturf provides an excellent surface for hockey, cricket, rounders and football. Children can also use two cricket nets and a transverse, double-sided climbing wall.

  

Indoor

Our indoor sports facilities now include not just two sprung wooden floored gymnasiums - one with bespoke wall bars and a range of child specific gymnastic equipment, the other equipped for indoor team sports - but a vast multi-use sports hall, with mezzanine viewing area.

    

Facilities Hire 

Our Auditorium, Recital Hall, Gyms and some of our spacious classrooms are available for hire during the holidays (including half term breaks).

Our All-Weather Pitch is available for hire for block bookings only during out of hours, and school holidays.
