WELCOME TO NEWTON COLLEGE
A truly warm welcome to Newton College, an exciting place to learn and a community driven by getting even better.
Our school has grown consistently since it was founded in 1991 and is now a leading school of reference within the local area and beyond.
What does amazing learning mean to you?
Here at Newton College, amazing learning is a life-long journey where we are challenged to get better in an ever changing world. This means that everyday, around the school we see our children and students growing in knowledge, skills and confidence as they respond to our challenge.
At the heart of this success is a clear and consistent focus on great learning experiences. We are successful, because we aim high. Our dedicated team of teaching professionals and supportive families work together to develop the unique potential within every one of our students.
Our creative international framework enables our students to excel at the best universities across the world.
Our students thrive as they learn both the British and the Spanish curricula. Between Early Years education and the Baccalaureate level, we also teach international programmes, after which our students have the option of pursuing the International Bilingual Diploma.
Beyond this, we prepare young minds for the future by applying a pedagogical model that is unique to Newton College: “Creative & Design Thinking”. This programme includes creative “Maker spaces”, which are designed for agility and innovation.
Newton College offers an environment where creativity, skill development and the appropriate use of technology become agents in the learning process. Our students are delighted in meeting the challenge of finding innovative solutions and transforming them into unique, attractive products.
All students enjoy a curricular and pedagogical framework along with interesting projects from our Social Action Plan and “Opening Minds” programme. Here, your children will experience and become aware of values that are important for their personal and emotional maturity, complemented by the elements that our school boasts in its emblem: independence, respect, personal integrity and knowledge.

Through our “Opening Minds” philosophy, our students are encouraged to adopt a broad point of view and a global outlook, not only from the knowledge they acquire but also from the world around them. We give them the tools and skills needed to apply this knowledge in real-world situations. They are encouraged to adopt an open mind that accepts cultural diversity, and helps them to become responsible and compassionate citizens of the world. We also give our students the space and time they need to discover and develop their talents in different areas (besides their academic aptitudes), giving them a full education that enables them to grow in every possible way and helps them to become the best version of themselves.
CREATIVE & DESIGN THINKING
Newton College is growing and evolving in how our students are encouraged to express their identity, hone their skills, discover the world and transform it.
Newton College’s mission is to provide education with an international outlook within an agile, dynamic and innovative framework. Based on this premise, we plan to upgrade our educational project with a more attractive work model in our different learning areas: CREATIVE & DESIGN THINKING (C&DT).
The main goals of CREATIVE & DESIGN THINKING (C&DT) are:
- Involving the type of teachers who are driven to learn and explore new areas of development as part of their teaching and learning experience.
- Developing a culture of “pedagogical innovation”, that makes us experts in the field, sharing our best practices through training courses and collaborating with other schools within the educational sector.
- Creating a varied learning environment through planning and improving, which can be adapted to our students’ different learning styles, allowing them to discover new ideas.
- Exploring critical thinking in the classroom, in which creativity, opportunity development and the appropriate use of technology play an active role.
We expect this methodology to respond to the educational needs of our 21st century students. Learning experiences are developed through our “Creative & Design Thinking” (#designthinking) approach, where are students are challenged to find innovative solutions to their goals. This process means that they will work through stages in which they will have to understand their own goals, engage with one another, explore and share ideas, define designs and ultimately present their product, seeking beauty in its creation.
This approach to creativity leads to the emergence of Creative Learning Spaces, small Ateliers or “opportunity workshops”. These are attractive, multi-disciplinary spaces created with adaptable furniture, which allow both teachers and students to adapt their learning space to meet the requirements of the work they need to do (working in small groups, sharing experiences, hosting exhibitions, individual supervision and research), combining several tasks at a time and always under teacher supervision.
