About Newington College

‘Discover what’s possible’. The words are part of Newington College’s DNA and shape everything about us. One day our boys might be testing solar-powered vehicles they’ve built themselves; the next they might deliver an inspiring music performance or test their wits at theatre sports. They might play rugby and enjoy chess, ponder the works of great philosophers and volunteer with a charity. By meshing the tradition of the AAGPS (we’re a founding member) with creative, future-focussed academic, co-curricular, wellbeing and sporting programs, Newington creates an environment where boys can be their best – whatever their interests.

Newington College is a boys’ school with 2000 students across four campuses. The senior campus, for students in Years 7-12, is set over 10 hectares at Stanmore in Sydney’s inner west. It caters for boys of all abilities and offers the HSC, the International Baccalaureate Diploma and VET courses at Years 11 and 12.

Our prep schools are Wyvern House at Stanmore and Lindfield Prep, a bushland oasis in Sydney’s north. The College’s Early Learning Centre, for boys and girls, opened in 2018.

Boarding is available to boys in Years 9-12. The Edmund Webb Boarding House is a small, close-knit community of 50 boys who come from the Sydney metropolitan area, regional NSW and overseas. The friendships formed among Newington’s borders are often friendships for life. The boarding house is minutes from the senior campus and supervised by experienced staff who also teach there, so boys have immediate access to subject experts outside school hours and mentors to provide advice and guidance.

Newington College provides a range of bursary and scholarship options to boys with potential in general and specific areas. 

In turn, we are looking for scholarship or bursary applicants who have:

  • Strong academic ability or potential, with good reports that reflect effort and solid references from their school.
  • Sound character traits and a potential to lead;
  • A willingness to participate in a variety of educational and school-related activities.
  • Evidence that they enjoy active participation and achievement in his co-curricular program, eg sport, visual arts, drama, music, debating or service learning projects (community service).

All boys applying for a Newington College scholarship or bursary must sit the bursary and scholarship examination.

A complete list of Newington College scholarships and bursaries can be found here: https://www.newington.nsw.edu.au/admissions/bursaries-scholarships/bursaries-scholarships-overview/

The College offers 14+ scholarships and bursaries across academic, music, general excellence and boarding and offers specific bursaries to Indigenous and Tongan students.
