Imagine a school... 

that inspires a love of learning and has each child's wellbeing at its heart.


New School nurtures curious, compassionate, critical thinkers, ready to meet the challenges and embrace the opportunities within our changing world.

Community Events

We run weekly classes such as Yoga in a Yurt,  a Community Talking Circle, Parent & Toddler and a Parent & Baby Group. We also have an inspiring line up of talks, workshops and events. These are all regularly updated on our Facebook page here. They are a great way to pop in and see what all the hype is about!

Educating the mind without educating the heart is no education at all.
