Breens Intermediate is situated in Harewood, in North West Christchurch.   We are set on a large site with the Bishopdale Community Preschool.  Our spacious grounds feature three teaching hapu (nine classes in total), native plantings, an adventure playground, hard courts, all weather sports courts, an outdoor Rock Wall, six specialist Technology spaces including an outdoor Science and Enviro area, a Centre of Information and Learning which features a Library Digital and Design space and 3-D printing hub, Student Radio Station, Rock Music Space and Hall. 

We pride ourselves on being a family school, small enough to know our children and families well and we provide diverse opportunities for all of our students to be involved in.  We have between 270-290 students who actively walk and talk our school values of being BOLD, BRAVE, BRILLIANT, BEAUTIFUL and showing BELONGING.

Our teachers are dedicated professionals who understand the specific needs of emerging adolescents.  Our teaching and learning is student centred, authentic and rich and responsive to the needs of our learners.  We are well resourced in the area of Technology and this is supported by a well developed Bring Your Own Device Programme.  

The school is well recognised as a leader in the area of Collaborative Teaching and Learning.   Our modern, flexible and purposeful spaces enable our teachers and students to work alongside each other in varied ways, always with the primary focus on helping students to be the very best they can be as learners.
