About Newington

Newington is a comprehensive K-12 boys day and boarding College. We are one of the six founding members of the GPS - an alliance of independent boys’ schools in New South Wales. In 2018 our Early Learning Centre for boys and girls opened.


"I can say without fear or favour that the current Council and Head partnership is rock-solid and there is the strongest level of alignment on the culture, strategy and future of the school, across all three campuses." Chairman of College Council, Mr Tony McDonald

Newington College was founded in 1863 under the Wesleyan Methodist Church. The aim was to establish a school that would provide students with a modern liberal education.

We are over 150 years in the making and as a Uniting Church school, we offer high quality education and a diverse co-curricular program to primary and secondary school boys.

We are a proud member of the Great Public Schools Association – an association of Boys’ schools in New South Wales.
