Clifton Terrace Model School (CTMS) is a small, full primary school (years 1-8) situated about a 10-minute walk to the Wellington central business district. The size of the school means that pupils are generally known throughout the school, and our teachers are resourced to ensure every pupil receives an education focused on quality.

We strive to be innovative, versatile and successful in all that we do, from the warm, welcoming environment to the approaches of our teaching and learning and to our partnership with families in the CTMS community.



Clifton Tce Model School has recently been interviewed by NZ Curriculum to share their successful digital learning journey. You can read the full article here.
