Newtown School was founded in 1798 by the Religious Society of Friends (Quakers). The ideals of its founders continue to inspire the school, which today educates boys and girls for life in the twenty-first century.

Newtown School welcomes boarders and during the day of all religious beliefs, and values ​​the contribution of all faiths to the school community. The school aims to foster a sense of concern for others and communicate a set of values ​​that reflect a balance between the material and the spiritual.

According to the Quaker tradition, each person is valuable and has something to contribute. Newtown School promotes these ideals and, while the rules are reduced, we expect a high standard of behavior on the part of students, who are encouraged to meet these expectations in an understanding and supportive environment.

In a changing world, education must focus more and more on the type of students and produce material to be studied. Adaptability, confidence, courage to producer changes where necessary and above all, the ability to deal with other people, are among the qualities that Newton School promotes through a sensible and liberal life education.
