Principal's Welcome

Our Mission Statement is "Learning to Live, Living to Learn." We promote that Statement in all we do. We talk about the Hampstead Way, the expectations, standards and commitment to learning that we value and live by. We encourage our children to take pride in who they are, what they do and how they can serve their Community.

Since 1886 our School has served Ashburton, we look back at a fine history and take pleasure in the reminiscences of the numerous student reunions that are held.  

In acknowledging our past we also look to the future.

Property developments are ongoing- in 2016 we are  constructing two additional classrooms.  Our ongoing aim is to present a thriving environment that encourages learning.

Our Curriculum lies at the heart of why we are here. Our School has responded to the revised curriculum and National Standards by reflecting on how we teach, where we want our children to be and how we can get them there. There is a determination by all involved with the School that we work to ensure students reach their potentials and go beyond them. Our teachers are provided with quality professional development and opportunities to apply innovations.

Hampstead School is a busy place- you will find varied opportunities for your child, we encourage children to be active, to be motivated and passionate about their education, whether it is playing an instrument, on the sports field or participating in competitions.

Families are integral to a child's education; our School is in partnership with you. Meet the Teacher Evening, Student Reports, Community Newsletters, Curriculum Evenings and Parent help on Camps and trips are some of the ways you can support and be involved with your child at Hampstead.
