A unique school in Christchurch's central city has parents lining up to get their children into it.

Ao Tawhiti Unlimited Discover is a state-funded special character school that currently has 193 on its wait list.

Students work on a 'high-trust model', directing their own learning and can learn anytime anywhere, including off-site if it's agreed.

There is also a cohort of students who are not able to attend full-time education.

Ao Tawhiti Unlimited Discovery principal Anita Yarwood joined Kerre McIvor.
