Principal's message

Welcome to Newtown High School of the Performing Arts, the first government school in New South Wales to provide a continuous program of academic achievement and excellence in the Performing Arts.

We strive for excellence in everything we do. Our school is a dynamic learning community committed to providing an engaging, safe and enjoyable educational environment. We have a harmonious diverse population and our parent and community support is outstanding.

At Newtown High School of the Performing Arts we recognise that creativity is essential to the human experience and integral to all learning. Our goal is to inspire a lifelong love of learning. Our core school values of excellence, creativity and equity foster students’ academic, creative and social potential.

Through a unique enrolment model of local area students and selective entry for Dance, Music and Drama students, we promote engagement and challenge students in a supportive environment.

Extensive co-curricular activities allow students to excel in sporting and cultural pursuits, and we offer multiple opportunities and programs for developing leadership skills. Teachers, parents and students work in partnership to ensure every student receives the highest quality education.

This website provides information on all aspects of the school. I hope that you find it useful.
