Blomfield Special School



We offer an ethos of manaakitanga; respect, warmth and caring for the whole child and their whanau.


Welcome to


Special School

We are determined to engage every student in our school to discover their potential.


Our students are not an afterthought of programming - they are at the heart of all our work – as we seek to ensure they are fully included in the world they are learning more about every day.   We believe it is not ‘where‘ a student is educated that makes their learning inclusive – it is ‘how’ they are taught. Come and see what we mean.

A Passion for Education

At Blomfield we are passionate about what we do. We firmly believe that each student has undiscovered potential for learning and it is our job to discover this for each child.
