The school board is seeking a new principal at an exciting time, as we grow our roll and look to undertake a capital works project.

We are a national residential special school for up to 20 female students with complex learning, social and lifeskills needs and are the only single-sex residential special school in the country. Girls can enrol for up to 2 years, attending school during term time and returning home each holiday period.  We are a Y7–13 school and all academic programmes link closely to the New Zealand Curriculum.

With our vision 'Every Girl Succeeds', our focus is on raising individual student achievement levels and improving life outcomes. This year the school has attained ERO’s highest ranking, with the following key strengths outlined in the report:

  • Accelerating the learning of students who need significant additional support
  • Strong, positive relationships that provide a basis for student growth and success
  • Delivery of individualised programmes that support learning and wellbeing
  • Highly skilled staff with specialised expertise
  • Strong and supportive community links that provide a wide range of additional learning opportunities
  • Leadership that supports and grows teacher practice
  • Stewardship that is committed to, and advocates for, the learning and wellbeing of students.

The board is looking for a principal to continue to build on and add to these strengths, someone who is a committed leader and team player who listens and communicates well; someone who is enthusiastic with a sense of humour; is trustworthy and thoroughly professional; and who is passionate about helping each student reach their potential, while also helping to build staff capability. Experience in capital projects is advantageous.

We are in Richmond, Tasman, in a therapeutic, park-like setting with an on-site principal residence.

Start date term 1, 2020.
