Gisborne Central School





Welcome to our school! 


Have a look at our day to day happenings on our Central School Facebook Page.

We are a Year 1-6, decile 6, school nestled in the heart of the suburb of Whataupoko in Gisborne . We are the school of choice for many and finished 2014 with just over 400 students.We are big enough to be effective and small enough to care - our students are people, not numbers!

Our class sizes are favourable and a real feature is the fact that our New Entrant classes do not go beyond 19 students! We are committed to getting our little ones off to a great start.

Our school community prides itself on the challenging and varied learning opportunities that exist for the students of Central School. Students experience quality opportunities across the entire curriculum; culturally, in the arts and also the sporting arena. Standards are unashamedly high, as we want the best for our students! Central is a school where students learn without disruption.

The dedicated staff, Board of Trustees, Parent Support Group, along with our fantastic students and wider community, make Central School a great place to be.

We welcome enrolments from all students. We do have an enrolment scheme (zone) in operation,Details on the zone can be found by visiting here.
