"The College prides itself on its welcoming, friendly, family atmosphere that generates strong professional relationships between staff, students and caregivers. Every student is valued, with opportunities for all."
Teaching innovation is strengthened by our core of strong traditional values: respect, tolerance, caring and perseverence. This supports high academic achievement. Our courses develop the skills required by our community - local, national and international - giving our students the foundation for future success. Thirty kilometres from Christchurch, we benefit from easy access to urban facilities and from the community strengths of our rural environment. We have close links with primary and tertiary organisations, allowing positive transitions through all stages of education. Our facilities are an integral part of community life. Our students and staff are our greatest asset and are fully involved in all the decisions we make to enhance our school. Positive community involvement is a key focus for Ellesmere College. “Life-long friendships begin here” Gavin Kidd, Principal.
