Picton School is a co-educational primary school that caters for children from Years 1- 6. Our school, which was opened in 1861, occupies a sunny open site with spacious grounds for physical activity.

The school maintains a high profile in the community and a partnership exists between parents, caregivers, staff and the children. The parent and school community has high achievement expectations for their children.

Picton School is committed to individual achievement and the uniqueness of each student is highly valued. Classroom programmes are designed to be challenging, success-orientated and fulfilling. We value academic achievement, positive attitudes, pride in effort and the willingness to take part in the opportunities the school provides. 

We look forward to you joining us soon!
