Huntley is an independent preparatory school catering for boys and girls in years 3-8. It is located in Marton, within 30 minutes' drive of Palmerston North and Wanganui.
We provide a school culture in which children can be children, and are kept busy and active. A Huntley education is a complete, well rounded learning experience that is about more than just academics and sport. Huntley instils confidence and a readiness for whatever comes next.
Despite all the changes that have occurred within our education system, technology and society itself, Huntley has stayed true to its belief that children need grounding in the vital basics of academic learning and life skills to carry them through their transformation into young adults and onto secondary school. We strike a balance between traditional learning and the use of digital technology. Devices are used to assist with student’s learning, but not to be the learning.
Some of the features of the Huntley education are:
Huntley has been educating and caring for international students for over 20 years. Through immersion in our mainstream classes and boarding environment, our international students make rapid gains with their spoken and written English.
