Vauxhall School

Follow the pohutakawa trees, down the quiet residential cul de sac to Vauxhall School.  You will find our small Devonport primary school of 270 students surrounded by open, green playing fields.

Open the doors to one of the best primary schools in Auckland - a committed team of experienced teachers, and support staff who are warm and dedicated to each child.   This support extends outside the school gates to our loyal parents, families and close-knit local community.

Vauxhall Primary School values are the backbone of our shared purpose in providing a solid education that is inspiring and innovative.  They play an important role in our everyday teachings and interactions.

Our school values






Our primary school in Auckland, and it's community, isn’t just made up of the great students and dedicated, enthusiastic and passionate teachers.  It is the parents, local community, the fundraising committee, the Board of Trustees in conjunction with the teaching staff - who together provide a quality primary education for every child who attends Vauxhall School.

The invaluable resources, equipment, and our variable space open classrooms reflect a modern learning environment, to further your child’s learning to build their confidence and a love of learning as they become respectful, young people.

At Vauxhall School We see play as an integral part of how children learn and grow. 'Play based learning' underpins our  programme in the Junior School and evolves into rich student-led learning in the senior school.

Our aim at Vauxhall Primary School is to develop self-assured, open minded children who possess a positive attitude to lifelong learning.
