Outram School is a full Year 1 to Year 8, Primary School. We start 2016 with a roll of 175 students. The school has a wide catchment across the Taieri Plain. Students come from the Outram Village and beyond. Three bus routes bring students from Woodside, Allanton, the Maungatua Rd/Berwick area and from the Momona area. Henley is within the school zone but is not served by a bus.
This year, we have eight classrooms organised into three learning teams, Junior, Middle and Senior.
The school is set in pleasant surroundings with well-established trees, gardens and playing areas. The school is well resourced. Facilities include a school pool, the Allen Centre Library and Vision space, School Hall and Workshop, After School Care facilities and Mechanics Shed.
