Hautapu School is a full primary school, U4, Decile 10 , catering for Year 0 to Year 8. Currently, there are 211 pupils enrolled in the school, located on the corner of Hautapu Road and Hana Lane, approximately 5 km north of Cambridge and 15km south of Hamilton

Our school is proudly a Silver Awarded Enviro School and  we are currently working towards our Gold Enviro School award.

The school comprises 8 classrooms (including both a New Entrant and Intermediate Pod), School Hall, Computer Suite, Library, 20 metre Heated Swimming Pool, Administration Block, 2 Playgrounds, Netball/Tennis Courts and large Playing Fields. The school also has the services of an RTLB (Resource Teacher of Learning and Behaviour).

Hautapu School was founded in 1878, and was moved onto its present site in 1912.  
Since that time, the Hautapu District has evolved from being a predominantly dairying area to a lifestyle and horse stud area. There are many small holdings of 1 to 6 hectares, and several horticulture and horse stud properties that have been successfully established. Our school community covers a very diverse range of occupations, with a significant number of families coming from the local surrounding area including the Hautapu Village, with many previously enrolling from Cambridge and Leamington.

We are fortunate that we can still retain the country flavour and atmosphere and take pride in our status as a leading semi-rural school. 

Hautapu has always been a district in which parents' involvement has been high, and many projects have been undertaken resulting in a very modern, well resourced and attractive school. This high level of parent and community support continues today, and we encourage parents, past pupils and friends of the school to become involved and keep that momentum going. We have a very proactive Board of Trustees and PTA and terrific community support for them.
