Welcome to Ilam School

We trust you find this website useful as you consider your children’s education. While it summarises the many parts of Ilam School there is, of course, nothing quite like ‘being there’. You are welcome to visit at any time.

Ilam Primary School is a unique educational facility. It provides exciting opportunities for Years 1 to 6 students. The school roll is approximately 500.

Next door to the University of Canterbury, we enjoy extra curricular activities not always possible in a primary school setting.

We embrace biculturalism. Many students from overseas are enrolled at Ilam, so the richness and diversity presented by the many cultures is enjoyed by all students. A special emphasis is placed on catering for the individual needs of all students.
