Our school is situated in the Borough of Gosport, South Hampshire. We have delightful grounds and an extensive playing field. We are always proud of the wide variety of crops that we grow in our school gardens. We have two large playgrounds, one with outdoor fitness gym equipment, football table and table football, the other soon to have an outdoor classroom and large climbing equipment. We are linked very closely to Christ Church in Stoke Road.
We admit 60 pupils each year into Reception. Organised into two classes per year group, each class teacher is supported by a full time Learning Support Assistant, specialist and trainee teachers.
The school is well resourced with an extensive library, wireless IT capability with laptops, tablets and netbooks available for the children’s use. Each classroom has the latest Easy Touch LED display boards. Our ICT suite has over 20 computers, all of which are available via home log in for our staff.
There is a strong commitment for excellence in the arts and sports at Newtown. We encourage participation in a wide range of sporting activities and enthusiastically compete in local competitions. Our choir is led by Mr Pilott and pupils are actively encouraged to participate in public singing examinations. Children are able to receive tuition in guitar and brass.
We value the external and internal environment of the school and high quality displays of the children’s work are evident in every classroom and shared areas. This shows the value we place on our children’s efforts and achievements.
Our feeder secondary school is Brune Park Community School, but a number of our pupils are admitted each year to Bay House School. Brune Park is a specialist performing arts college and has a state of the art dance studio, drama studios as well as a gym and swimming pool.
