Welcome to Bainesse School, a rural primary school nestled in the scenic Manawatu District, conveniently located between Palmerston North and Himatangi Beach on Rangiotu Road.

Our school boasts three well-equipped classrooms, a modern playground, a spacious field, and a refreshing school pool that adds to the enjoyment of our students during the summer terms.

Bainesse School is an active member of the Te Kawau cluster, a group of nine schools. Through this collaboration, we engage in a wide range of sporting, cultural, and academic activities, including athletics, swimming, speech competitions, and various other sporting events.

We extend a warm invitation to all parents considering enrolling their child at Bainesse School to come and visit us at any time. Our students and staff are exceptionally welcoming, and we are confident that you will be impressed by the positive learning environment and the quality of teaching that our school offers.
