Gladstone School was first established in 1876. It is a full rural primary for students from Year 1 to Year 8. Gladstone School provides a safe learning environment where students participate in a range of quality learning experiences. We are very proud of our environment and the resources that we have to offer.
Our school currently draws students from the surrounding rural areas of Gladstone including: Longbush, Te Whiti, Te Wharau, Ponatahi, Ahiaruhe, Maungaraki and a smaller number of out of zone students from Masterton and Carterton, (both situated 15 kilometres away). Our school receives very strong community support.
