Welcome to Newington!
Dear Parents and Guardians,
2017 marks the start of an immensely special journey. Secondary school will provide a host of new experiences that will challenge and develop your sons into balanced young men ready to make a positive contribution to our society. However, they cannot do it on their own! It is vital from the outset that both parents and staff form a strong partnership to nurture and support our boys as they grow into men.
This Insite provides all the answers to the myriad of questions that will arise in the months ahead.
Begin your journey below by meeting the Heads of Year 7 and the Year 7 Mentors, who will play an integral role in your boy’s transition.
