Our Ethos

Newington College is committed to remaining as accessible as possible, encouraging diversity and creating opportunities for boys of character who will make a significant contribution to the life of the College.

Social justice in education

With a charter founded on Methodist values, our emphasis is rightly on social justice in education. Our history is rich with stories of boys who required financial assistance to experience a Newington education and went on to make outstanding contributions to society.

Boys who take up this opportunity do so in the same spirit of justice.

  • They understand that such an opportunity brings responsibilities to the College, to their families and to themselves.
  • These recipients share their often considerable talents.
  • They encourage other boys to be the best they can be and they demonstrate that, beyond Newington.
  • They will contribute positively to society.

Assistance to boys of promise

The Newington College Endowment Fund has been established so that, by 2040, we can continually provide 100 potentially outstanding young boys from families with proven socio-economic need, the opportunity of a Newington education throughout secondary school.

This is Newington’s social justice policy in action. We actively pursue our value of diversity through a focus on socio-economic inequality.
