Welcome to the Junior School

Kristin Junior School caters for students from Kindergarten through to Year 6. Our innovative and proven programmes are designed to challenge our students while ensuring that their natural inquisitiveness, their creativity and the inherent sense of fun are nurtured along the way.

Our teachers are professional educators who have the children's best interests at heart. The International Baccalaureate framework supports their skills and expertise, providing support and extension opportunities for all students. This capacity for differentiation allows students to access the curriculum at their level, while encouraging individual growth and achievement of personal bests.

Kristin is the first school in New Zealand authorised to teach the International Baccalaureate Primary Years Programme (IB PYP), which all students follow alongside the New Zealand Curriculum.
