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.


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 a flexible, dynamic, and innovative framework. Based on this premise, we plan to upgrade our educational project with a more compelling work model in our different learning areas: CREATIVE & DESIGN THINKING (C&DT).

design thinking

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 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.

Newton College has been included in the most important rankings in Spain

The newspaper 𝐄𝐥 𝐌𝐮𝐧𝐝𝐨 has positioned us among 𝐭𝐡𝐞 𝟏𝟎𝟎 𝐛𝐞𝐬𝐭 𝐬𝐜𝐡𝐨𝐨𝐥𝐬, being 𝐭𝐡𝐞 𝐨𝐧𝐥𝐲 𝐬𝐜𝐡𝐨𝐨𝐥 𝐢𝐧 𝐭𝐡𝐞 𝐩𝐫𝐨𝐯𝐢𝐧𝐜𝐞 𝐨𝐟 𝐀𝐥𝐢𝐜𝐚𝐧𝐭𝐞.

For this ranking, El Mundo has taken into account a total of 27 criteria to select the 100 best schools in Spain in 2023.

The first of these criteria is the teaching model, which in turn is divided into a total of 9 points covering the educational model, external recognition, quality models, commitment to comprehensive training, taking into account other variables beyond grades to evaluate students, value for money, loyalty to the centre and care of the teaching staff.

The second criterion that the world takes into account to include the different schools in the ranking is the educational offer. Within this criterion we find the number of languages offered within the school, the qualifications of the teachers, the number of support teachers, the number of hours of tutoring, the reinforcement of special abilities and the success of the students in the university entrance exam. Also important are the social aspect and workshops as well as extracurricular activities and the medical service which ensures the health and safety of the pupils.

The third and last criterion taken into account by El Mundo is the material criteria, which includes the number of students per classroom, the number of students per teacher, the square metres available in the school, the space inside the classrooms to facilitate the work of teachers and students, the computer equipment, the school’s transport offer, the price, places and quality of the canteen, as well as the complete sports facilities and the correct laboratory infrastructure.

The prestigious Forbes magazine has also included us in its Forbes list of the best schools 2023. Forbes has praised and highlighted the combination of primary and secondary curricula, as well as the International Baccalaureate Diploma Programme, of which we have been a part since 1999.

The newspaper El Español has included us in its list of the 50 most outstanding schools. El Español has relied on the collaboration of experts to carry out the ranking by examining the documentation obtained by the newspaper, the schools being the primary source of information.

Last but not least, Micole, the number 1 school search engine in Spain, has included us in the ranking of the 100 best private schools in Spain.



You can apply for a place by filling out a registration form and sending it to the school secretary to be assessed by the Director of Admissions and External Relations. Alternatively, you can get in touch with us through the school website and fill out an online application. When the Director of Admissions has received your application, she will contact you to arrange a visit so you can see our school and its facilities, submit any documents, and pay the relevant enrollment fee. If the student is to enter Primary, Secondary or Baccalaureate courses, he or she must take an entrance exam in both Spanish and English.


Participation is only mandatory during school hours and in the dining hall. Any other services such as transportation, special morning hours (Breakfast Club), or extracurricular activities are optional, and are therefore only payable by families that request them.


Laude Newton College is the only private British school in the province of Alicante. It offers a comprehensive and unique education, imparted with proven academic excellence. Our students have achieved the best results in University Entrance Tests for Spanish Universities (Selectividad), the official exams for Cambridge, and the Goethe-Institut for many years.


At Newton College we celebrate multilingualism. Our 1450 students are from over 35 different nationalities and many of them speak over 3 languages fluently.

English is our main language of instruction, but we also have Spanish Language & Literature in our curriculum as well as Valenciano, the co-official language of the Valencian Community. Our curriculum includes French and German language options starting from Secondary school and progressing until Year 11.


It is important to distinguish correctly between each type of school. An international school offers an authorised international program in each of its educational stages; British schools only offer the British National Curriculum, and bilingual centres offer a specific number of courses in English.


Our students at Newton College benefit from all the three school models mentioned above in terms of their education as well as qualifications and certificates. We also have an international community through International Schools Partnership that greatly enriches our educational experience.


In the early stages, it offers a combination of the International Early Years and Primary (IEYC and IPC) Programs with the British National Curriculum. At the Secondary level, it combines the Middle Years Program (MYP) of the International Baccalaureate (IB) with the Spanish National System. Finally, in the Baccalaureate stage, students have a choice between two clearly distinct paths: The Diploma Program (DP) of the International Baccalaureate or the Spanish Programme. We are the only school in the province to offer this project and our efficiency is highlighted by our leading position in multiple educational rankings.

Altogether, the teaching we offer at Newton College guarantees the highest quality of education. Our students can make connections between what they have learned and the real world. We provide education that encourages ethical responsibility, personal achievement, innovation through learning and assessment, independence, critical thinking, curiosity, creativity, and team work, all while developing a social conscience.


Our students are the driving force of our educational philosophy. In this regard, neither programme is better than the other, and we try to guide our students towards the programme that they are best suited for: our obligation is to offer them the path that is best tailored to their needs and future projects.


The Diploma is recognized internationally and is one of the most regarded and highly valued qualifications in the most prestigious universities of the US, Canada, Australia and the United Kingdom.

It has also been recognized in Spain as the academic equivalent of the Spanish Baccalaureate qualification since 2010. This means that the Diploma gives our students the right to access Spain’s different public and private universities without having to sit the PAU (University Entrance Tests), which is not widely known among Spanish families.

There are more than 5,000 IB schools in over 150 countries around the world, and there are more than 350,000 students enrolled in this programme.
