Be Brave, Be Strong, Be Borough

Welcome to ABS at Borough and at Lagmhor. ABS is a full primary school for years 1 to 8 and Lagmhor a primary school for years 1-6.

In 2001 ABS merged with Lagmhor School, ensuring the continuance of a rural school in a rural community, while offering opportunity to both students and staff of both sites. The combined schools are known as ABS incorporating Lagmhor. The merged schools operate as one school on two sites.

ABS was the first Green Gold Enviro School in the South Island and is one of only a small number of schools in NZ recognized as a UNESCO Associated School.

In 2005 ABS opened an after school care programme known today as Oscar. For more information about Oscar please click here.

In 2016 we became an International Baccalaureate World School authorised to deliver the Primary Years Programme (PYP). For further information about what it means to be an IB school click here.

Please take your time to look around our website to find further information about our school, our learning as well as domestic & international student enrolments.
