Welcome From the Executive Headteacher


I hope you will find out through this website that Newington Green Primary School today is a vibrant and exciting place of learning, as it has been in times past.  We are building on the tradition of producing critical and influential thinkers who have shaped our world.


Our staff are committed to giving children the very best opportunity of making their mark on the world.  It is our hope that we have amongst our pupils the ‘movers and shakers’ of tomorrow.


History has shown us that Newington Green was a hugely influential area, and the school, a very important institution in shaping our national history.


There has been a school on this site since 1784, when Mary Wollstonecraft, the famous feminist, set up school for girls on this site, with her sister Eliza. In the following couple of years; inspired by her experiences with her school, Wollstonecraft wrote the feminist tract Thoughts on the Education of Daughters, a polemic about women’s education.


Newington Green has an established history of providing high quality education to the children of the local area.  Today we are a two form entry school (2 classes per year group), with a Nursery and 2 Year Old Provision.


Newington Green is a friendly and exciting place to be. We are constantly working on improving the education we provide for our children and are never complacent.  It is our job to do the best we can for your child and the wider community.


The aim of our website is to give you a taste of what life at Newington Green is like, and provide updated information for parents, pupils and the wider school community.


I hope you enjoy your visit to our website. I am happy to meet you if you are interested in visiting our school. 


Thanks for visiting our site!
