About Us

We develop learners with DRIVE

Who we are

A rural, family friendly school

Newbury School is a rural, family friendly school catering for children from Year 1 to Year 8. It is situated 2 minutes drive out of Palmerston North on Rangitikei Line. Our vision is to provide a vibrant, caring learning community that captures and values the potential of every child. This guides us in all we do in providing exciting, innovative learning programmes and recognising the individual needs of each child. We aim to develop learners with DRIVE who are prepared for life!
