Multi purpose, Shows, Fundraising Southwell School was founded on the vision of one man, Mr Cecil Ernest Ferris, who was born at Southwell, England, a market town near the city of Nottingham. He moved to New Zealand to start a new life and soon realised the need for a church school where boys could have a ?fuller? education than that which was provided by the country schools. Mr Ferris announced he would start a private school for boys and call it Southwell School. In November 1911 Mr Ferris started Southwell School with one boy, Robert Oliver and later, Vernon Wilkinson, at Allington Homestead which is now the site of Melville High School. As the roll grew they moved to many sites around Hamilton. We are a boarding and a day school, for both girls and boys, Years 1 – 8. We have a low teacher/student ratio.
