Newington Academy is an exciting, caring and fun place to be. we are extremely proud of our Victorian building that has now reached the grand old age of 139! Our numbers have grown dramatically in recent years and we now have 335 pupils on roll, ranging from 3 to 11 years. We currently have 12 registration classes, 2 in the Foundation Stage, 5 classes in Phase 2 and 5 classes in Phase 3. All of our classes are supported by passionate teachers and excellent learning support assistants.

We offer a huge range of extra-curricular clubs along with our  Breakfast Club which is open every morning - it is our policy that we do not charge parents or carers for any provision or visit that we offer. 

The area around the Academy is currently being regenerated so it is rapidly changing -  we are very excited about these changes!  Newington Academy is a thriving academy full of life and fantastic experiences that gives the Academy its unique atmosphere and place in the community. We have a busy and enthusiastic learning environment where there is always much to do, see and learn.

Our curriculum and philosophy ensure that all of our children are safe, successful and happy learners and leave us with the skills needed to be ambitious, resilient and respectful citizens.

We warmly welcome you to our learning community. If you are interested in visiting our Academy, please do not hesitate to contact us to arrange a time.
