College

At Newton House, our students experience the advantages of more individualised care and attention, made possible by small class sizes (roughly 12 students per class). They thrive in well-equipped and stimulating learning environments. This ensures that our students are engaged in a dynamic academic program where they are constantly challenged to reach their full potential.

We follow the National Senior Certificate (NSC) CAPS curriculum, equipping our students with the necessary skills and knowledge to tackle not only the demands of tertiary education, but to prepare them to enter careers and to be productive members of society.

At Newton House, we are committed to accommodating students with various concession requirements. We strive to create an inclusive environment that caters to the unique needs of each student.

ACADEMICS

At Newton House, we prioritise academics. We strongly believe in providing the very best education and as a result, we offer a range of additional classes every day. These include support and homework classes (free of charge) to students who aspire to excel as well as to students who may be struggling.

Newton House takes immense pride in the noteworthy academic achievements of our students, which are consistently accomplished year after year. This success can be attributed to our exceptional teachers, who offer unwavering support and guidance to every individual student.

Nonetheless, the accomplishments of our students extend far beyond academic excellence during their time at the College. They acquire a diverse range of skills, such as independent thinking, critical and creative problem-solving, efficient knowledge acquisition, and effective communication. The collaboration between teachers and students fosters a dynamic learning environment, acting as a crucial steppingstone towards adulthood.

Currently, we provide a comprehensive range of subjects in both the General Education and Training (GET) phase and Further Education and Training (FET) phase.

COLLEGE EXTRA MURALS

At Newton House College, we believe in catering to the diverse interests and passions of our students, with a wide variety of extramural options to choose from. We foster a culture of holistic development and encourage our students to actively participate in extra mural activities each term. Our commitment to offering a diverse range of extra murals enables students to engage in competitive leagues and social activities, all while enjoying the benefits of a supportive community.

Our extracurricular program acts as a catalyst for personal growth and empowers students to excel both inside and outside the classroom. To ensure our students receive the highest quality guidance and instruction, we employ a team of professional, qualified coaches. Their expertise and passion helps students refine their skills, enhance their technique, and achieve their full potential. Our commitment to excellence is reflected in the dedicated support our coaches provide, enriching the overall extracurricular experience for our students.

CHROMEBOOKS

At Newton House College, we try to incorporate technology into everyday classes through the use of a Chromebook. Chromebooks are known for their ease of use, portability, and access to a variety of online tools and resources. The use of Chromebooks can enhance teaching and learning experiences for both teachers and students.

By integrating Chromebooks into the classroom, teachers can employ various teaching techniques that leverage technology such as interactive online activities, multimedia presentations, educational apps, and collaborative platforms to engage students and make learning more interactive and dynamic.

Furthermore, using Chromebooks helps students develop digital literacy skills, which is increasingly important in today’s technology-driven world. They become familiar with online platforms, digital research methods, effective communication through digital mediums, and critical thinking in evaluating online information. These skills are valuable not only for academic pursuits but also for their future careers and everyday life.
