With eleven campuses across New Zealand, we are a Y3–13 independent special character school. We are unique, delivering the New Zealand Curriculum to over 1,700 students across 16 sites, small classes with motivated and high-achieving students, modern well-equipped learning spaces, an innovative approach to education and a strong focus on self-directed learning.

Reporting to the principal team, the associate principal is a member of the senior educational leadership team (SELT) with responsibility for ensuring the requirements of the New Zealand Curriculum are implemented across the senior school (Y9–13)

Working alongside key members of the SELT, you will have oversight of all senior school learning programmes, including the review, development and redesign of a senior curriculum that is future-focused and sets the scene to ignite a passion for world-class learning. You will also provide leadership for senior school staff to help them develop consistent application of future-focused learning. Additional responsibilities may include lead person for NCEA and the principal’s nominee for NZQA, although this is negotiable.

Exceptional communication and relationship skills, and proven experience leading teams are critical, as is respect for our ethos and values. This is an exciting opportunity for educational leaders dedicated to providing high-quality learning programmes in an innovative and modern learning environment. 

It is essential that all applicants have New Zealand teacher registration and recent New Zealand experience, preferably in a leadership role in a secondary school.

We are affiliated to OneSchool – 22 privately registered schools with 175 campuses across 21 countries. With eleven campuses across New Zealand, OneSchool provides support and promotes cooperation and coordination between affiliated schools in their commitment to providing global standards in a progressive education environment.
