Head’s Welcome

Head’s Welcome

Choosing the right school for your child is one of the most important decisions you will make. We are blessed in London to have so many excellent schools to choose from. So what makes Newton Prep special?

First, we are ambitious for the children. We want to provide them with exceptional opportunities both within the classroom and beyond. Ultimately, we want them to be equipped to apply to the best senior schools, whether day or boarding, in London or further afield. We are a co-educational school. This means that boys and girls learn together and play together. That seems to me the right way of things. 

We have outstanding facilities. Whilst facilities do not in and of themselves make a good school, they do mean that our children have wonderful opportunities, here on site. They can do Games on our large All-Weather pitch, do PE in one of our three sports halls, learn science in one of our 3 science labs, perform in our 300-seat auditorium or sing in our 125-seat Recital Hall.

We want them to develop good learning habits, to realise that success comes from hard work or in the words of  Sir Isaac Newton: ‘My powers are ordinary. Only my application brings me success.’ Underpinning all of this, we want children to be decent and kind to each other. We want them to respect difference; to be tolerant and kind; to celebrate the successes of others; to show compassion for those in need. These values drive our school.

I very much hope that you will find something here that resonates with you, that makes you feel that this could be just the right educational environment for your child. However good a website is, it is no substitute for a visit so please do come and see us as soon as you are able. I am enormously proud to be the Head of this school. I would love the opportunity to show you what we might be able to offer your child.  Click here and scroll down to register online, if you would like to join me on one of my regular Friday morning tours of the School.
