Each year Newtown School welcomes students from several countries such as Spain, Russia, Germany, Japan, Italy and France. Students from other countries are made to feel very much at home in our small school community and we value their individual contribution to school life.
Students travel home for holidays or stay with host families and host families also welcome students for weekends when the school is closed (i.e. every three weeks). Please get in touch to discuss any special requirements you may have – we will be delighted to hear from you.
Newtown School is a registered charity and it operates on a ‘not-for-profit’ basis. Each year its fee levels are set to achieve a break even position on normal school activities.
Possible extra costs are minimal. You will have to buy a uniform & sports gear (although we keep this to a minimum), music lessons are charged if required and all textbooks. For Day scholars, meals can be availed of in the dining hall using an electronic payment card or app (meals are included in the Boarder fee). There are additional charges for external trips if students choose to participate.
