Our Place

Bradford School is nestled on large, peaceful, semi-rural grounds in a quiet cul de sac. We may be in a busy city landscape, but our children can experience a slice of the countryside with our chooks, vegetable gardens and space to play in; learning becomes an all encompassing experience. 
We are very proud of our learning community and special environment. The school values of Respect,  Empathy, Awhina (supporting others), Integrity and Kia Runga Rawa (aiming high) are integral in all that we do. Read more about our values...
