Learning together – Soaring to new heights


This website provides a summary of evolving information about Wigram Primary School.


The website will be used to update you on the development of the school as Sockburn School relocates onto the new site in Wigram as Wigram Primary School.

Sockburn School will be renamed as Wigram Primary from the beginning of 2018, and will be located on the Sockburn School site until the move.   The Wigram uniform will be introduced from the beginning of term 1 2018 as well.  Further details of the uniform are noted on this website.

We expect that with the name and the uniform already introduced, the move to the new site will have less impact for the children.

Wigram Primary will be a Year 1- 6 primary school situated in the culturally diverse area of Wigram, and is expected to open during 2018.


The masterplan is for a school of 500 students, with an initial build for 300.


An enrolment scheme is in place, and information regarding application for out of zone students can be found on this website.


We welcome any feedback, and questions regarding the new school.

Wigram Primary School will officially take its name from Term 1 2018. Initially it will be located on the Sockburn School site, and the students will be transitioned to the Wigram site once building is completed during 2018. This will make the transition a smooth one.
Out of zone enrolments for term 3 2017 close on Wednesday 7 June.

Wigram Primary School
We are currently in the process of appointing a Project Management Company to manage the Wigram School build project. Shortly we will be able to share the proposed timeframe for the build and our move to the new site.

Uniform – The uniform has been set and is on the Office display board. We are introducing the ‘bottom’ half of the uniform this year, with the ‘top’ options being available next year. This helps split costs for parents.

Enrolment scheme – Initially this will be in place for Sockburn School, and change for Wigram Primary when we move. All students, and future siblings, are guaranteed to be classed as ‘in zone’ when we do move to Wigram, or while we are onsite at Sockburn.
The enrolment scheme for Sockburn School will take effect on 1 May 2017. For outside of zone students, there will be a ballot process and dates for applications, and ballots, for each term will be available over the next couple of weeks.
All enquiries welcome.

Building plans are underway and will be available for all to view once they are confirmed.
