Pyes Pa School is situated in the sunny Bay of Plenty, just 10km south of Tauranga.  It is an 8 teacher rural school.  Pyes Pa School is unique in that it offers its children a country atmosphere with the challenges and activities offered by city schools. 

Pyes Pa is an attractive school with expansive views of farmland, sea and Mount Maunganui in the distance.

The school has spacious well-sheltered grounds, ample hard surface areas and a lovely section of native bush.

Many of the facilities in the school have recently been renovated, providing a comfortable and attractive working environment for all.


The majority of children come from the surrounding Pyes Pa area.  This area is well known for its diverse land use and occupations: orcharding, floriculture, dairying, sheep farming, packhouses, lifestyle blocks, just to name a few.  A small number of children travel daily from Tauranga.

Pyes Pa School is one of the traditional contributing schools for Tauranga Boys' and Girls' Colleges, both very popular secondary schools in the city.

The school is well known for its strong parent and community support and its many academic, sporting and cultural activities.
