Hereworth School

Primary/Intermediate (Years 1-8 approx. age 5-12)

Hereworth School is one of New Zealand’s leading independent preparatory schools, catering for boys Years 1-8. It offers an outstanding education to day and boarding students.

We’ve been teaching boys for over 100 years at Hereworth. We inspire, engage and challenge them. Preparing boys with a solid educational foundation, so that they leave Hereworth fully ready for the challenges of any secondary school.

Every day at Hereworth is stimulating, unique and exciting. We tap into boys’ sense of wonder and curiosity about the world around them. By tailoring programmes and activities to meet their specific needs, we ensure every boy has the opportunity to reach his full potential.

The School Motto  - Non Nobis Solum, Not For Ourselves Alone, says it all.

There are two words that best describe Hawke’s Bay and they are Wine Country - but there is much more than wine to this sunny region.

Hawke’s Bay is one of New Zealand’s warmest, driest regions and this has made it one of the country’s leading producers of wine; notably red wines – cabernet sauvignon, merlot and syrah – but also with some quite stunning whites.The region is the first stop on the Classic New Zealand Wine Trail, and it's a popular place for bicycle wine tours.

Hawke's Bay is New Zealand’s Art Deco centre, rebuilt in the 1930’s after a huge earthquake. It hosts the country’s most elaborate celebrations of Matariki – the Māori New Year. It’s a place where you can shop at the farmers' market for locally grown delicacies, indulge in artisan gourmet food, and join the lunchers at Napier’s Great Long Lunch. And it’s a place where you can walk the forest trails of the Ruahine and Kaweka Forest Parks, visit the Cape Kidnappers gannet colony or relax on the
glorious beaches that stretch along the coast.

Hawke's Bay offers every kind of accommodation, from exclusive lodges and self-contained cottages to hotels, motels, camping grounds, bed & breakfasts and homestays. Some wineries have room for guests, providing the perfect setting for a romantic stay.
