Welcome to Newington College. This is the official site for the Strategic Plan 2015 - 2018 'Discover what's possible' .

Outline of the Strategic Plan

A risk of strategic plans, due to the need for clarity of action and lines of accountability, is that each element is seen as a standalone project. Yet the reality is that all elements interact dynamically, each shaping the whole.

The structure of the Strategic Plan is broken into Guiding Principles, Foundations and Pillars of Distinction. For each Foundation and Pillar there will be a detailed internal document with further detail around priorities, goals, strategies, timelines, defined resource allocation, priorities for each year of the plan and an allocated staff member to lead matters. The Master Facilities Plan is publicly provided as a supporting document. All strategic plans must be flexible to changing circumstances over the life of the plan.
