Welcome to

Tom Newby School

Home of the Tom Newby Tigers

Our purpose is to provide the pupils of Tom Newby School with the best possible academic, cultural, sporting and social conditions to ensure they develop to their maximum potential while in our care.


Based in Airfield, Benoni, our warm and homely school creates an environment where our pupils are nurtured to become life-long learners who develop into tomorrow’s leaders.


Our team of committed educators create an inspiring and caring environment where each child is encouraged and guided to be the best that they can be. We celebrate each child’s unique gifts and abilities, and our commitment to the social, academic, cultural and physical development of our learners has remained unwavering for seven decades.
