Newington College is a boys, K-12, day and boarding school located in Stanmore, an inner Sydney suburb near the University of Sydney. Founded in 1863 on principles of inclusivity and diversity, Newington College has three campuses: the secondary campus, Stanmore 7-12 and two Preps, Stanmore K-6 and Lindfield K-6. In all, over 1,950 boys currently attend the College as day students and boarders. 

Five pillars of distinction set the main focus for the College’s direction. These are: an excellent learning and teaching program; an emphasis on well-being, character and service to others; an engagement with spirituality, values and ethics; a diverse range of exciting co-curricular opportunities and a strong emphasis on community in partnership. Aspiring to make every member of the College feel welcome, connected and appreciated, Newington takes pride in a diverse and dynamic school community. Boys of all faiths and denominations, from every geographic area, are embraced and the College acknowledges the wide variety of family backgrounds that comprises the Newington community. 

The College’s vision is to provide an internationally respected education that empowers boys to become men of substance and resilience who make an active and positive contribution to society. The School is proudly non-selective and encourages students to achieve their personal best. The belief that in order to lead successful lives boys must be motivated to learn is fundamental to everything offered at Newington. 

The Boarding House accommodates just 50 boys from Year 9-12. The boys of Edmund Webb House are representative of the diversity of the Newington community and the House is fortunate to have a balance of regional NSW, overseas and metropolitan boarders. Four staff members and their families live throughout the Boarding House, to ensure a high level of care and supervision of the boys. Newington strives to create a home-like environment, where boys are safe, respected, supported and cared for. 

Newington boarders benefit from immediate access to all that Newington has to offer, in terms of facilities, staff and support. Situated 3km from the University of Sydney, 6 km from the CBD, and five minutes walk from the Stanmore Main Campus, boarding at Newington provides the boys with the best of both worlds—all the benefits of a boarding environment and exposure to the bustling community that exists beyond the College gates.
