welcome to insites
Insites are a series of Newington microsites dedicated to engaging the College community about information and events across our three campuses in Stanmore and Lindfield. These microsites offer the College an easy and immediate manner in which to connect with parents about important issues happening at Newington. From Learning with Technology and the College’s Centre for Ethics, to an online version of the College’s Strategic Plan, Newington Insites are regularly expanding to keep up with the vibrant pace and buzz of activity of the College.

The Centre for Ethics 2016 at Newington College is a forum for students, teachers, parents and the wider community, to engage in discussion of contemporary moral issues, beliefs and values.
|Service Learning at Newington
A Newington education does not come with a sense of entitlement. We expect all Newington boys to know when to serve, step up, and speak out for others.
Sport is an important part of the development and wellbeing of adolescent boys, and is a compulsory activity for all students from Kindergarten to Year 12 at Newington College.
Boarding has been at the heart of Newington College since the beginning. Newington boarders benefit from close access to all of the College’s state-of-the-art facilities, with the extra support of the Boarding family.

Newington offers the opportunity for boys to live and study abroad and be immersed in another culture. It also gives families the chance to host exchange students from international schools.
|Learning with Technology
Technology plays an important role in the way we teach boys at Newington College. With a Bring Your Own Device (BYOD) program in place, we hope to enrich the classroom experience by providing boys with more interactive and participatory ways of learning.
