Gordonton School is a full primary (New Entrants to Year 8) school 10km north east of Hamilton set in a tranquil rural setting.

We have eleven classrooms where your children will be taught by enthusiastic and committed, professional teachers.

The Board of Trustees is dedicated to having a low child to teacher ratio in the school. Our school fees are set to ensure this occurs.

We set very high standards for our children's work and behaviour, and have systems in place to assist those children who are gifted and talented, as well as those who are in need of assistance with their learning.

A much envied English as a Second Language Unit operates with international students being assisted with their new language at our school.

There are three Rights and Responsibilities for everyone at Gordonton School.

The Right to Feel Safe 

The Right to Learn 

The Right to be Treated With Respect

The school is serviced by four Ministry Approved Bus Routes including two that come from town. Board subsidies for these may become available, depending on the number of users.

Our school is a very well equipped Decile 8. The computer suite and library are areas we are particularly proud of. There is also a large assembly hall, two tennis courts, a basket ball court and a swimming pool.

It's that time of year again! Hats, Hats, Hats!

Term 4 sees the compulsory wearing of wide brimmed hats (no caps unless they have the flap at the back) return. Our school policy is that all students and staff will wear hats when outside during Terms 1 and 4. Can you please ensure that hats are sent along to school.  Bucket hats can be purchased from the school office.
