There is a second school within the parish boundary. Newton Solney can trace its history back to the 10th century.
There are a variety of village groupings some of which are related. The Parish Council (seven councillors) is the formal tier of local government. The Village Hall is managed by an elected committee. There are several village activities which are organised by elected committees - the recreational field, the rifle club, horticultural section, bowling, badminton and tennis clubs, Tuesday club, and art club.
Newton Solney has a branch of the Women’s Institute which holds regular meetings, usually in the Village Hall. The Newton Park housing development has a residents’ association. The two schools are Bladon House School and Newton Solney C of E (Aided) Infants School. The Parish Church of St Mary is the pastoral focal point for the village.
