About Our School


Welcome to the Leamington Primary School community.  We are located in the Cambridge suburb of Leamington and cater for the children of Leamington from 5 to 11 years.  

Leamington School is a place where children grow into responsible, respectful and successful young adults.

In recent years, the suburb of Leamington has changed considerably due to new sub-divisions being established, reflecting the increasingly affluent community.  The school has kept pace with this change to reflect the high expectations and pride that our community has towards its local school.

Our school is a medium sized school, growing to approximately 370 children by the end of the year.  We are progressive, forward thinking, and creative with how we deliver the curriculum to the children at our school.  We place emphasis on doing the very best that is possible for the children, and from this comes lots of innovation, high standards, and excellence.  As a result, our school is widely considered an educational leader in the Cambridge and wider Waikato area.

Our school is extremely well supported by an active, involved parental community.  We are also extremely well supported by many local businesses who get in behind our school whenever they can.

We set high academic, sporting, cultural and behavioural expectations for our children, which results in our children achieving to extremely high standards in all areas. 

As a school we have two driving forces which guide our class programmes.  These have been developed through consultation with our community, and research on what skills children will need to be successful in the future.
These are to develop a set of essential Core Goals the children will need for their future, and to develop virtues which will help them grow into responsible, respectful, confident, resilient adults.  

As a school we stand apart from others in that we place particular emphasis on developing not only sporting, and academic strengths in our children, but also provide extensive opportunities in the arts.  Our orchestra, choirs, and kapa haka groups are frequently asked to perform within the Cambridge community, and are distinctive to our school.
