New Enrolments

Newham Primary School is open for enrolments for 2025! We welcome all new students from prep/foundation to year 6, from all across the region.

Students residing within our school zone are guaranteed a place at our school, which is determined on the basis of your permanent residential address.  Those outside our school zone will be offered enrolment if there is sufficient accommodation at our school. 

Many of our families live in Newham, Romsey, Woodend, Kyneton, Carlsruhe and Pipers Creek and travel to Newham for the excellent education and supportive community.

To learn more, please join us on a school tour, or email or phone with any questions.
