Newtown, school

The former Newtown Primary School is on the corner of King Street and Newman Street, in the inner city suburb of Newtown. It was designed by George Allen Mansfield as a two storey Victorian Free Gothic building in 1875, with later additions in 1892 and a three storey tower at the main entrance in 1921. It is now part of the Newtown High School of the Performing Arts. A war memorial, located just outside the school, was erected in memory of all former pupils who served in the First World War.

  1. Perfect Victorian gothic architecture and a gentle colour external brick. Dark red brick is never as attractive.
