Pātoka School is located at the foothills of the Kaweka Ranges, approximately 35 minutes from Napier City. Our stunning students are supported by a dedicated Team of Teachers and Support Staff, with a future focused Board of Trustees and an amazing rural community.

Pātoka School has three modern classrooms. Mrs Field teaches our Year 0-2 as well as being our Acting Principal, Mr Tolley teaches the Year 3-5’s, and Miss Cooper the Year 5-8’s. At Pātoka School our students are Honest, Confident and Respectful learners. We teach through an integrated curriculum, seeking student voice on what and how they like to learn. We offer students a range of opportunities to shine in different areas including academic, sporting, EOTC and leadership. Our stunning school grounds provide ample room for adventurous children to explore and take risks.

Our doors are always open so please, feel free to come in and discuss your child’s learning, or call in to learn more about Pātoka. We look forward to meeting you and your child.
