A Christian school has been on this site since 1967. We are sited in a semi-rural setting in the western hills of Lower Hutt. The school sits in a peaceful country atmosphere — yet is only a ten minute drive from Lower Hutt city.

Maranatha Christian School is a co-ed Christian school with a roll  of up to 160 children from Years 1—8, drawn from over 30 churches throughout the region. 

As a state-integrated school we teach from the New Zealand National Curriculum, however, our point of difference is that we put a Christian lens on all that we teach.

Providing quality, affordable Christian education with a proven record of success, we are an excellent choice for your child. Our students typically go on to excel at secondary school in academic performance, sports teams, performing arts and their school communities, becoming prefects, bus wardens and team leaders.
