Welcome to Elsthorpe School

Elsthorpe is a small rural school catering for students from new entrants to year 8.  We provide a beautiful bush and rural setting while nurturing the development of future learners in all areas: Academic,Sporting and Cultural.

We are a very community based school and this is reflected in our culture.  We have a family orientated environment where older children care and support the younger ones.

Our low teacher/child ratio gives students the support and guidance they need, and combined with a very dedicated teaching staff children THRIVE.

Like the Kowhai, we continue to grow academically, socially, culturally and through sport.
Like the Kereru we confidently seek out the branch that grows the best fruit.

WE ARE ELSTHORPE AND WE ARE THE FUTURE
