Y1–6. Located in the picturesque and thriving community of Mangere Bridge, Auckland.

The retirement of our principal/tumuaki provides a special opportunity for the right person to lead our school into the future.

As well as providing leadership within the school the successful applicant will also be part of a committed Community of Learning (Te Iti Kahurangi) that currently has a student population of over 4,700 students and provides exciting opportunities for development and cooperation in lifting student achievement.

We are looking for an energetic and innovative leader committed to educational excellence who will engage and inspire students, staff and the community to achieve the best possible outcomes for every student.

A number of students speak languages in addition to English, 21% of students identify as Māori and 23% have Pacific heritage. The remainder are predominantly European with a small but increasing number of Asian students. An ability to engage productively across cultural settings will be required.

The successful applicant will be well-supported by a talented leadership team, the board of trustees and an engaged local community who are passionate about the school’s success. This is an excellent opportunity for a collaborative and innovative leader to further enhance student achievement and success in our community.
