At Newnham, we want our students to grow far beyond simply the educational side of school. We aim to develop students in a holistic approach; to ensure that they develop skills that cannot be taught in the curriculum, such as motivation, determination and resilience. We offer our students a wide range of activities which lend themselves to this end.
In KS2, students from both classes attend a bi-annual residential. Locations of these range from within Northamptonshire, up to the Lake District. These essential opportunities help develop the students in a truly memorable way.
Our KS1 children are also involved in the Forrest School project, which gets them out in the fresh air and introduces them to the local environment.
We have a wide range of extra-curricular activities to develop each student’s talent. Our art club produces excellent work and our musicians have the opportunity to develop through both brass and violin tuition. In addition to this we also develop some of the essential life skills such as cycle proficiency and swimming.
We also offer gardening club for children with little green fingers (and the strawberries we plant and grow are lovely). If sports are more your thing we have links with Northampton Saints and their coaches often come by to lead sessions with our pupils. If football is what you like then we have a football club after school and a freestyle football club at lunchtime. Both are very popular.
Whatever your hobbies and interests, there is an opportunity for you to grow and enjoy, supported by a dedicated staff.
