Lyttelton Primary School

Lyttelton Primary School is a Year 1-8 full primary school. It was built as part of the Christchurch Schools Rebuild programme and is the merger of Lyttelton West and Lyttelton Main Schools.

From the top floor with its stunning view across Lyttelton Harbour, down to its outstanding theatre space, Lyttelton Primary School is an extraordinary place to learn.

The $14.9m school Lyttelton Primary School has room for up to 300 students in its four learning studios, which are arranged in a two-storey building to make the most of the compact site.

It has flexible learning spaces, which support a variety of ways of teaching and learning.

From the top floor with its stunning view across Lyttelton Harbour, down to its outstanding theatre space, Lyttelton Primary School is an extraordinary place to learn.

There is also a high quality performance facility which was built alongside the main building. 

 

The school has a unique arrangement with The Loons Theatre Trust, which was forced to vacate its premises in Lyttelton after the earthquakes.

The Trust contributed additional funds to the school’s planned performance space to bring it up to the level of a professional theatre, and outside school hours, it is now LAF – the Lyttelton Arts Factory.
