A rich-list couple couldn't find a school to suit their son's needs - so they've built him a new one - at a cost of $10 million.

Property developer Evan Christian and interior designer Katherine Allsopp-Smith couldn't find an existing primary school offering the kind of education they wanted for their gifted son Branson.

"Both Evan and I had academic success but neither of us enjoyed the school years because our respective schools didn't cater to our passions and interests," Allsopp-Smith said.

"We believe childhood should be happy and joyous, not boring and tedious."
