St Michael’s Church School is a co-educational Independent primary school, with an excellent reputation as an academic institution.
We are the oldest established primary school in Christchurch, having been founded in 1851 in a small wooden cottage on the banks of the Avon River. We have been in operation on the Durham Street corner site ever since.
Traditional values are important to us, and they are balanced alongside a focus on the future. Our four key values - Learning, Aroha, Connectedness and Faith - underpin all we do, and support our wide range of academic, cultural, sport and spiritual opportunities.
What really sets our School apart from others is the sense of family. We work hard to make everyone in our community – children, parents and staff – feel welcomed and accepted. Learning is easier that way! Small class sizes and after school facilities make St. Michael’s the right decision for your family.
