Nau mai, haere mai.

Welcome to Fairton School

Fairton School is a small rural primary school educating learners from New Entrants to Year 6

It is situated a short distance from Ashburton in sunny Mid-Canterbury. The school was originally opened in 1901 and continues to be a focal point for the local Fairton community.

We provide high-quality teaching and learning opportunities for our students as part of a school community that maintains that family dimension so evident in rural communities.

​At Fairton School we encourage our children to be confident, curious and connected learners who grasp the opportunities offered and challenges provided. We seek to make a positive difference to both a child’s character development as well as their curriculum understanding.

Please explore our website and see what makes our school “tick”. If you have any questions or would like to call in for a visit please get in touch with our office, or myself.

Kind regards,

Mike Hill
