Welcome to Newtown Junior School


Thank you for visiting our website. We are very proud of our dedicated, experienced staff and very enthusiastic learners.

As part of our Quaker principles, we strive to be a unique community where the potential and talent of each child is realised within a friendly and positive environment.

As a relatively small school, through our staff and teaching we encourage each child to grow in confidence and compassion through experiencs beyond the academic. This illustrates what can be achieved through a broad and balanced education, which is appropriate to children from all faiths and none.

I do encourage you to review the About Us section for more details regarding our school.

Kind regards


Deirdre McSweeney (School Principal)
