To nurture individual potential.

The school is Napier’s largest coeducational high school with a roll of 1,000 (decile 7).

Our mission is to nurture each individual’s potential. Therefore, we place an emphasis on bringing out the best in each other.

Our responsive school is focused on positive relationships which create an inclusive school culture, which values students’ culture, their whānau/ family and community, encouraging Manaakitanga and Whānaungatanga. We are a strengths-based school where we see the potential in our students and support and guide them to be the best.

Our principal is leaving for new challenges and the board is now seeking to appoint an outstanding educational professional. We believe this is an outstanding opportunity for an inspirational leader who has a sense of fun and a passion for education.

We seek an experienced, inspirational leader with great relationship-building skills to grow our existing strong performance and student achievement. A leader who puts our community and our children at the heart of decision making. Someone who encourages teachers to be exceptional, critical practitioners and can demonstrate familiarity with current pedagogical theory and practice.

We offer our new principal:

  • A team of highly creative, dedicated and professional staff who have a focus on delivering excellence and equity
  • A school community which is aligned in their thinking from students, staff, to whānau/ families
  • An engaged BOT who are strongly supportive of personal development.

Applications are invited from suitably experienced and qualified educational professionals with a proven track record who can lead our school into an exciting future.

Position commences term 2, 2019 or by negotiation.
