Welcome to Wellsford School

Wellsford School has been a huge part of the community since the school was originally built in 1875 and was moved to the School Road site in 1911. It was used as a school until 1990, when students relocated to Wellsford Primary School further down the road and the Ministry of Education sold the site.

We are a growing school with a roll of over 350 students from New Entrants to Year 8. We have a diverse cultural mix of students who are motivated and keen to be actively involved in their learning. We enjoy the committed support of our community and we learn and grow together.

Our school is made up of 4 teams - Team 1 (NE - Yr 2), Team 2 (Yr 3/4), Team 3 (Yr 5/6) and Team 4 (Yr 7/8). We have 2 Deputy Principals, 2 team leaders and a SENCO who support our teams.

We have an aspirational culture with a belief in holistic education (developing the whole child). Our key priority is to empower our tamariki so they have the skills and active learning traits to be life-long learners and positive citizens. The school values of WHARE (whakaute, heartfelt, ako, responsibilty and effort) sit at the heart of all we do.
