Frankley School

Situated in a beautiful semi-rural valley on the outskirts of New Plymouth, Frankley school is a co-educational primary school for children in years 1 – 6. The school was established in 1853 so it has a long history in the community.

Currently we have 320 students. Our school is focused on enabling tamariki to become courageous, caring learners.

You can access publicly available information on the school at the Education Counts and Education Review Office websites.
