Situated on the coast 22km from Warkworth, our school seeks a dynamic leader who will inspire our young learners and our fabulous staff. The appointee should be enthusiastic about working within a welcoming, close-knit coastal community.

We have a positive, nurturing culture and our school celebrates our respectful and capable learners. Our children are a delight and eager to learn. Our very capable board provides extensive support to pupils and staff. 

Our principal should be a dedicated, future-focused 'people person' who has sound communication skills and leadership experience. With 3½ days per week in class we also expect the principal to be a highly skilled teacher.

Applicants applying from either north or south will find they have a relatively easy commute as most traffic heads south from Warkworth.

Two brand-new classrooms incorporating flexible spaces were built in 2016 and have enhanced the school’s learning and physical environment.

A defining characteristic of the curriculum the children enjoy and engage in is the fact that it links the children’s learning with their local community and its physical and social environment. The nearby marine centre provides a stimulating experience for our learners.

The school authentically supports biculturalism through Te Reo and Tikanga, which our new principal will be expected to engage in with enthusiasm. We have a close relationship with our te reo tutors, our kaumatua and the local iwi that we expect to be maintained.

The position commences early in term 4.

Application packs can be found on the KEA website www.keaeducation.nz.

Applicants will hear soon after 21 August if they go to interview on Saturday 31 August.
