Welcome to Newtown!

Newtown Infant School and Nursery is a medium sized school set on the edge of the old market town of Chesham in Buckinghamshire. Although we are surrounded by an area of outstanding natural beauty, we have our own link to the London Underground, and good access to the major motorway routes.

We presently have approximately 130 children on roll in the school and 90 in the Nursery. The school is central to the life of the Newtown area and enjoys many links with the community.

I trust you will enjoy your online visit to our school!

Mrs V Phillips, Headteacher
