About Newtown High School of the Performing Arts

Newtown High School of the Performing Arts is one of the leading Performing and Visual Arts schools in Australia and is recognised internationally for its excellence.

As well as studying the more traditional subjects the school curriculum allows students to study Dance, Drama, Music and Visual Arts to the highest performance and intellectual level.

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

The school provides challenging and effective specialist and artistic education programs and preparation for exciting careers in the arts and associated industries.

Companies and Ensembles in Dance, Drama and Music stage six weeks of Showcase Concerts twice a year.

All students enrolled have the opportunity to audition to perform; they often write the scripts, compositions and fellow students direct. They are supported by the students from the Video, Technical, Costume and Design Companies construct and design the sets, document and record performances.

The talented students are selected by audition and the school population is drawn from the whole of New South Wales.
