About Blenheim School
Welcome to Blenheim School, uniquely located in the urban heart of the township. We are a whānau — a family that includes diverse ethnicities, nationalities and backgrounds. We are united by taking care of each other, by our aroha of learning, and by our commitment to our school motto of GRIT — Growing, Respect, Initiative, Tenacity.
Growing as a learner
is seeking fresh ideas and ways to grow your brain to help you succeed.
Respect is how you treat others. It is shown by what you do and how you act.
Initiative is seeing opportunities and taking action.
Tenacity is sticking with something, even if you find it hard.
Now & Then
Blenheim School is Marlborough's oldest school. It was founded in 1859 — more than 160 years ago — and is still going strong. Many of the school's alumni still live in the local community.
