Principal’s Message

We encourage you to explore our website and find out about Milford School and all we offer.

 At Milford School, we want children to feel happy and secure to develop self-confidence in a safe and supportive environment. We promote personal excellence and provide a culture of caring where all students are empowered to learn and achieve. 

Milford School provides a high-quality education that grows curious, creative, and critical thinkers who strive for success in all that they do. Students are engaged and excited about their learning. They are prepared to take risks and know how to try again and succeed. Our job is to empower our students so good learning habits come from within.

We are an IBPYP (International Baccalaureate Primary Years Programme) school. We follow the New Zealand Curriculum through a concept-based lens, valuing student agency, connected learning, and meaningful learning. IBPYP is an engaging and innovative curriculum framework that will enable your child to realise their potential. 

At Milford School, we promote the concept of whanaungatanga and students experience a strong sense of belonging and inclusion. We embrace diversity and difference and the richness this brings to our school. The school culture is further enriched through our school values of respect, integrity, commitment, and empathy, which are embedded into the culture of the school. 

Milford School has a strong and supportive community. We warmly welcome parents, caregivers and whanau into our school and value rich and authentic home-school partnerships. Working together, we give your child the best chance of achieving exceptional outcomes.  

Poipoia te kakano kia puawai 

Nurture the seed and it will bloom
