A little bit about us...

"Welcome to Newington Academy"

"My name is Mrs Leighton I am very proud to be the Headteacher at Newington Academy.

We are a hard working community driven to ensure every child is inspired to lead a truly remarkable life

Our vision is to gather and motivate inspirational people who are committed to delivering an excellent education that launches children into remarkable lives!

This vision plays a critical part in driving Newington Academy forward and developing the aspirations of our staff, pupils and parents - we look forward to welcoming you to our academy!"

Newington Academy is an exciting, caring and fun place to be - our mission is to inspire children to choose a remarkable life and be the very best that they can be!

We want everyone within our school community to...


At Newington, we choose to be unusually brave. We're not afraid to challenge wrongs, to make the right call, even when it's both unusual and difficult to do so.


We are on the search for discovering what's possible. At Newington we look to create 'eureka moments' for our pupils, helping them discover a world of possibilities and opportunities.


We always strive to push the limits. We don't settle for less than excellent and we won't allow our pupils to either. We resolve to overcome any self-imposed limits.


At Newington we commit to being big-hearted. We choose to treat each other with kindness, warmth and care, believing that everybody matters and believing in one another.

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 355 pupils on roll, ranging from 3 to 11 years. We currently have 14 registration classes; 2 in the Foundation Stage, 4 classes in KS1 and 8 classes in KS2. 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!
