Roydvale Primary School

is situated in suburban Northwest Christchurch.
Set in spacious grounds it has

– fourteen classrooms,

The school also has a tennis court, netball courts, a large sports field and a confidence course for older students.

Roydvale School is a very friendly and positive place

where there are high expectations for learning and behaviour.

The 300 children who attend Roydvale are considerate and supportive of each other and are fortunate to be offered a wealth of opportunities to spark their interests, feed their enthusiasm and extend their creativity. Whether it is programmes offered as part of the curriculum or extra-curricula activities, the range offered goes towards creating well-rounded individuals with a richness of experience.

Our programmes establish a solid foundation for lifelong learning.

We have extremely high quality teaching and support staff who work together to provide a breadth of educational experiences in a friendly and caring school community.

The school has a strong family atmosphere with parents and community members providing assistance in sport coaching, transport for trips and classroom programmes.

Please feel free to contact us with any enquiries or read more about our school.
