Newtown School


Waterford, Ireland


Welcome to Newtown School Waterford, Ireland

Newtown School was founded in 1798 by the Religious Society of Friends (Quakers). The ideals of its founders still inspire the School which today educates boys and girls for life in the 21st century.

Newtown School welcomes boarding and day students of all religious persuasions, and appreciates the contribution of all denominations to the school community. The school aims to foster a sense of caring for others and to communicate a set of values which reflects a balance between the material and the spiritual.

In keeping with the Quaker tradition every individual is of value and has something to contribute. Newtown School promotes these ideals and, while rules are kept to a minimum, high standards of behaviour are expected and students are encouraged in a supportive and caring environment to fulfil these expectations.

In a rapidly changing world, education must concern itself more and more with the calibre of student it produces as much as with the courses to be studied. Adaptability, confidence, the courage to make changes where they are necessary and, above all, the ability to get on with other people are amongst the qualities that Newtown School promotes through a sound liberal education for life.
