Hillsborough Primary School

School of First Choice in the Hillsborough Community

Principal's Welcome

Hillsborough Primary School is recognised as a leading school, with a strong focus on student learning, catering for children from Years 1 to 6. The school is sited on an elevated position with extensive views of the Manukau Harbour.

We are a safe, proud and progressive school. Our quality teaching staff provide an exciting learning environment that encourages independent learners and thinkers. We provide a wide range of Information Communication Technology, have an excellent library and curriculum resources.

We aim to guide each student to reach their full potential, ensuring good self esteem and the ability to understand, accept and respect others. Through a carefully designed curriculum, we encourage students to be capable, self-assured and self directed life long learners.

We take pride in our students’ achievements. Hillsborough Primary School offers additional programmes for gifted and talented children, English second language programmes, Chess and Music lessons.

Our school is active in many sporting activities. We take part with other schools in Swimming, Soccer, Netball, Rugby, Gymnastics, Athletics, Hockey and Cricket.

The well being and education of your child is a partnership between school and home, a responsibility which we recognise can only be achieved through close interaction of parents and teachers. Parents are welcomed and encouraged to take part in their children’s education.
