Newtown School was founded in the troubled year of 1798 on the Waterford estate which had been the home of Sir Thomas Wyse, himself a key figure in Irish Education.
Its purpose was the education of Quakers from Munster, but during its 100-year development it has broadened into the distingushed multidenominational school of today, still based on the Quaker ethos and respect for the contribution of each individual, regardless of ability or aptitude.
In that year the school was on the brink of closure, but when it was taken over by the irrepressible Arnold Marsh, it revived dramatically and now flourishes as never before.
