Local schools are an essential ingredient in any neighbourhood or community. In addition to their primary function of being learning institutions for our children, they are also a central focal point for families, and a place where people who are new to the suburb can make friends and connections. Schools are also often hubs of activities such as sports, music and drama, providing opportunities for children and their parents to participate in a safe and friendly environment.
Glen Innes is fortunate to have a wide selection of primary and secondary schools within its catchment, and there are also opportunities and excellent transport routes to school children out of the area in neighbouring zones, or to private schools.
Getting to and from school has to be safe and reliable. Walking school buses operate to and from some local primary schools, and school bus routes include some of the schools in the area. For families sending their children to schools out of the area, there are also options including several bus routes or taking the train from Glen Innes station. Bus routes also take children to and from most private schools in the wider Auckland area while school and public buses run morning and afternoon from various areas in eastern Auckland.
