About Us

Welcome to Rotherham School – the best little school in North Canterbury.  Rotherham School is a small, rural school catering for Year 1-6 with two classrooms, a fantastic library in large well maintained grounds.

Here at Rotherham School we want students to get the very best learning opportunities and be part of a family atmosphere where all ages of children play together and support each other through their time at Rotherham.

All of our staff are keen and enthusiastic to offer a quality education which is enhanced by small class sizes.

As a staff we like to get involved in fun community days and promote the same for parents.  This attitude is what sets us apart, where parents are seen supporting their children in activities held on various events throughout the year.
We are able to offer exciting programmes and have bright, attractive classrooms where there is an awesome family atmosphere.  This is one of our strengths along with our whole school approach to learning.

Vision & Motto

At Rotherham School we inspire confident, connected lifelong learners for the future.
