Newtown School is a co-educational boarding and day school. Boarding facilities are offered on a three weekly basis. Some students may opt for weekly boarding. Occasional boarding is also available if space permits allowing day students the opportunity to stay in the school for a short period of time. Day students have the opportunity to become day boarders and remain in school until after evening prep thus allowing them to take a full part in all aspects of school life.
Boarding in Newtown School
Great importance is attached to the creation of a friendly, close-knit community in which young people can settle, make firm friendships, feel at home and thrive.
There are two residences, Annamaur (girls) and Arnold Marsh (boys). Accommodation is mostly in dorms but there are also twin and single rooms. There is a common room in both houses. Residential staff have rooms in the residences. Non-residential teaching staff are also involved in residential duties on a rota basis.
A designated residential staff member is assigned to each year group. There is always a staff member is on duty when students are in the boarding houses.
Students decorate their dorms with posters and pictures and bring their personal belongings to create a homely environment for themselves.
