Welcome to our school
New Chapter became a sponsored academy on 01 January 2013. It is part of the Milton Keynes Educational Trust (MKET); currently there are 4 schools within the Trust – Walton High (secondary), Hersongate (primary 2013) New Chapter (primary 2013) and Kents Hill (infant 2014).
New Chapter is slightly larger than most primary schools with 308 children.
The building has two stories and is situated in large grounds. There is an extensive playing filed, an adventure playground and two all-weather playgrounds.
There are 12 classes from Reception to Year 6. In each year group there are 2 classes of 25. Generous staffing means classes are smaller than in most other primary schools.
There is also a well-stocked new Reading room, sports hall, dining room, medical room and an administration area. There are cloakroom and toilet facilities on each floor and two disabled toilets. We also have two changing rooms, with toilets and drinking fountains, which are accessible from both inside and outside.
