Welcome to Newington Community Primary School in Ramsgate. I have been the Headteacher of the school since it opened in 2007 and we have seen the most incredible changes during this time. I am so proud to be leading a school that is full of hard working, polite and friendly children who are supported by an incredibly committed staff team who will go the extra mile because Newington children deserve the best!

In the last 12 years the school has more than doubled in size due to its popularity, we have upgraded our facilities so that we are now graced with buildings and grounds that are suited to the needs of a twenty first century education. Whilst we serve the immediate community of Newington we also take children from across Ramsgate and also from Manston and beyond.

Our primary aim in school life is to ensure that the children are happy, safe and secure, but equally we need to ensure that our children are confident readers, articulate writers and quick and accurate mathematicians. Newington children are socially responsible, can work as part of a team and are able to understand the needs of others, and we pride ourselves in developing very special young people.

The proof of the pudding is in the eating; we achieve within the top 20% of schools nationally for the progress our children make and we achieve significantly higher than schools nationally and in Thanet. We also have thriving musical and sporting provision that enables children to excel in many aspects of life. Children at Newington deserve the best and that is what we endeavour to provide them with.

Newington children are Ambitious for themselves, they Achieve highly and have great Aspirations for their futures; what more could you want as a parent. We believe that children can forge their own futures, with the right support from their families, and can achieve anything that they put their minds to.

We believe that Newington is the place that every child can achieve their potential; don’t take my word for it, come and see for yourself! 

I look forward to meeting you.

Kind regards

Cliff Stokes
