Stanmore K–6 is devoted to the pursuit of academic excellence. Each boy is valued for his unique capacity to contribute to the life of the College.

Newington College is dedicated to excellence in education for boys and realising each child’s potential. The school provides a balanced curriculum encompassing the spiritual, academic, cultural, physical and practical areas of learning.

Stanmore K–6 prides itself on being a non-selective, multi-stream school for boys from Kindergarten to Year 6. Boys move automatically from Year 6 to the Senior campus in Year 7. The size of the student population is approximately 485. The campus is set in the Inner West suburb of Stanmore, easily accessible by train and a short five minute walk from the Senior campus.
