Introducing Outram

A warm welcome to our Outram School website. I invite you to explore all the information we have shared about our school, our pupils, our staff and our school community. We are proud of all we do at Outram and I am confident you will enjoy this 'snapshot' of all that happens within our busy learning environment.

Return often to check on updates. If you are ever in Outram, please call in; I will be more than happy to give you the guided tour.

Overview

Outram School is a full Year 1 to Year 8, Primary School. We start 2019 with a roll of 154 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 seven classrooms organised into two learning teams, Junior 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.
