An exciting opportunity to make a significant difference to the educational outcomes of our students.

Applicants should be able to teach up to Scholarship level, be a NZ registered teacher and endorse the college’s academic priority. The successful applicant will also be expected to be involved in our extensive co-curricular programme.

A Y9-13 school in Auckland serving a largely Pacific Island and Māori population. Our students’ families are in many cases first or second-generation New Zealanders who moved here for a better life and opportunities for their children, and this is reflected in the family aspirations.

As a school, we are committed to increasing the number of students who go on to degree-level study, and in particular in the STEM area. This is a challenge because for many, they will be the first in their families to gain a tertiary degree.

The school has gone through a period of significant improvement in the past four years and we are currently looking for excellent classroom practitioners who can continue, and build on, our students’ successes, ideally for a start in late July (however, we are prepared to negotiate this).

The maths department has 10 full-time staff and is well led. Our focus is on improving basic number skills in Y9–10 so that the students are well prepared for their examinations in the senior years.  

Our Y11 results last year for maths were the best we have achieved in the external examinations and we want to do even better this year. We are also part of a Community of Learning, which is four contributing schools and our college working together to lift the mathematical achievement of the students in our care.
