What to Bring

What you need to bring when you board at Newington.

Items to Bring

Here is a basic list of items that boys are required to have for Boarding at Edmund Webb.


Boys must ensure that they have sufficient, appropriate clothing to attend school. All uniform items can be purchased from the Uniform Shop located on Stanmore Road.

Summer Uniform

  • Short-sleeve business shirt
  • Shorts (grey for boys up to Year 9, navy blue for Years 10–12)
  • Long socks (grey for boys up to Year 9, white for Years 10–12)
  • Black leather shoes
  • Black leather belt
  • School tie

Winter Uniform

  • White long-sleeved business shirt
  • Long grey trousers
  • Black leather shoes
  • Black leather belt
  • School tie
  • Newington black knitted jumper (optional)

Sports Uniform

  • Newington tracksuit
  • Newington polo

  • Sport shoes
  • Sport specific uniform is also required for most sports

Expectations for Appearance

Boarders should have enough uniforms for:

  • School 5 days per week
  • Sport training at least twice each week
  • Saturday sport

Boarders must satisfy the expectations that other students of the College must meet with regard to appearance. This includes being clean shaven and having an appropriate haircut at all times.

When not going ‘to and from’ school, boys may wear casual clothing around the local area – more specifically, this means that they should not ‘half change’ out of school uniform when venturing outside. Stay in uniform or make a complete change. Remember to label everything!
