Bishops School

43 Nile Street
Nelson, Nelson/Marlborough
"Bishop's School, Nelson, was built in 1881 to replace the brick school building completed in 1844 as part of an education programme established by the Anglican Bishop of New Zealand, George Augustus Selwyn (1809-1878)."

"Selwyn had definite ideas on the role of the church in education and wanted to establish a network of schools under the control of the recently established St John's College in Auckland. St John's School, Nelson, as it was to be called, was the first such school that Selwyn established under this system."
