South End is a full primary school (Years 1-8) situated in Carterton, Wairarapa.

We offer classrooms teaching both Montessori and mainstream education. Our current roll is approximately 150 students.

Students at South End benefit from diverse learning pathways and a wonderful environment that includes extensive playing fields, gardens and new classrooms. We are proud to be an Enviroschool.

We believe that te ao Maori is an important part of our children’s education and we offer weekly lessons in Te Reo and kapa haka.

Our Vision

South End School students will be confident, resourceful and resilient learners.

They will develop respectful and responsible relationships with themselves, others and the environment.
