We are experiencing unprecedented times as a country and as a world during the Covid-19 Pandemic, but our hope and trust as a school community continues to be in our sovereign God, the author and perfecter of our faith.
We are a non-denominational Christian school that caters for children from Year 1 – 13. Our point of difference - We are a Christ-Centred, Pupil oriented school. Our ‘Why’ is to offer families a holistic education for their children, focusing on Character, Excellence and Service – for the glory of God.
Middleton Grange School provides a first-rate general education with academic results of the highest quality, and we do this by providing an environment in which the Biblical truths of Jesus Christ are taught and lived.
We see learning as holistic; it aims to instruct the mind, shape the heart and prepare the hands for service.
We want our young people to critically engage in the rapidly changing society and culture that they live in, in order to be a positive influence and to point others to God by their example.
We look forward to welcoming you to be part of the Middleton Grange School family – a school community of Special Character!

Christchurch has not managed to get its recycling correct for a single day in the past nine weeks, leaving hundreds of tonnes needlessly being sent to landfill.
Council rubbish collectors have had to dump contaminated residential yellow bin waste every day since May 4, when recycling facility EcoCentral reopened after the coronavirus lockdown.
In that time 635 truckloads of recycling have had to be thrown away – almost half of what has been collected, or about 3175 tonnes. The problem, caused by people throwing non-recyclable waste into their yellow bins, has cost ratepayers about $635,000. Read more here.
With sweeping beaches, hidden caves, seals, penguins and albatross - we think this must be the most underrated stretch of New Zealand. Have you been? Read more on the link below.
