Our Vision 

To ensure our students are able to take their place in the world they will be Resilient, Resourceful, Respectful and Responsible individuals 

Principal's Welcome


Gorge Road School is a Year 1-8, full primary school located on the Southern Scenic Route to the Catlins between Invercargill and Fortrose. We are staffed with three teachers for core curriculum areas, and a teaching Principal.  Our staff brings a range of expertise, abilities and interests to their classrooms, providing a broad foundation for creative and exciting educational opportunities and positive learning outcomes for all of our students.

Our school is a key part of the Gorge Road community and is well served by a team of highly professional and skilled staff, an efficiently run Board of Trustees led by Dianne, and an enthusiastic PTA led by Kim . 

Gorge Road School is part of the Lower Mataura Valley Community of Learning and the Southern Zone Cluster of Schools. The Zone offers a wide range of sports as well as opportunities to mix with seven other schools for inter-school sporting and cultural experiences. The Zone also runs a programme especially for Years 7 & 8 students.

Our small class sizes allow us to ensure optimum levels of achievement for all students by engaging them in personalised learning relevant to their needs, so they are challenged and motivated to work hard, and to enjoy their successes.

We pride ourselves on being a vibrant multi-cultural environment, with students identifying as NZ European, Indonesian, Dutch, Filipino and Maori. See our performance at Polyfest 2019

We are committed to maintaining strong partnerships between school and home.
We believe that the best learning takes place with positive, transparent communication, and encourage you to share your comments regarding your child’s learning with us.
