Welcome to Newton House

Gravitatem Resistere Possumus

 ‘Build bridges, not walls’


Welcome to Newton house. If you're reading this page, it means you've joined, or are thinking of joining, the best house that Purbrook Park School has to offer.  In Newton we value resilience, inclusiveness and intellectual curiosity as core qualities instilled within our pupils. We believe in challenging ourselves to be better daily, whether that be by delivering an act of kindness, pushing ourselves academically or by simply breaking out of our comfort zone. With this mantra in mind, we are confident that we are sowing the seed for future success.

One of Sir Isaac's key beliefs was to "build bridges between us, not walls" and this is an ethos that will be evident in the hard work and personable demeanour of our House Captains for 2022-23: Armani Spurway and Malcom Gonzalez.
