Welcome to Collingwood Area School


Together we ride the wave of life long success                             Ka eke ngatahi tatou i te ngaru o te                        

Greetings and Welcome to Collingwood Area School

We are a small school situated almost as far north as one can travel in the South Island, in the beautiful Golden Bay region. The school has been in place for over a hundred and fifty years and so has a wealth of tradition upon which to build an exciting future for our children. We are very fortunate to have some amazing resources at our door step ranging from the Heaphy Track to the Abel Tasman and a great deal more in between.

The school caters for students between Years 1 and 13 with the school site also hosting the local play centre. Given the nature of the school and the ages of the children we have an exceptionally strong family feel to the school – everyone looks out for each other. This creates a very positive learning environment for our children. Some of the features of our school include:

  • Small class sizes
  • Individualised programmes for senior students
  • Practical, hands-on subjects running alongside academic ones
  • Achievement levels for NCEA well above national averages
  • Highly qualified teachers who are able to cover the full New Zealand Curriculum to all year levels
  • Modern library and technology facilities
  • Ultra-fast broad band connections
  • And much, much more …

At Collingwood Area School we are proud of what we can offer and of what our students can achieve at all levels. We welcome visitors to the school and look forward to showing you around. Join us at CAS and let us help your children to a bright future.
