Are you an inspiring leader for our students and an energising coach and collaborative leader to our staff? Perhaps you can see yourself leading our highly engaged team as principal U5 in Wellington's premier suburb.

Our school is now looking for a very special person to take on the position of school principal from term 1, 2020.

Having opened a multimillion dollar flexible and innovative learning environment in 2018 we are looking for a future-focused collaborator, adept at all aspects of school leadership who will inspire, motivate and challenge us to reflect on our practices and feel valued. Student progress and achievement are key focus areas for our board of trustees, and analysis and reporting is a key priority.

Our amazing home and school are actively planning and delivering regular activities, big and small, for fundraising and community engagement.

To be the right person for this exciting and prestigious opportunity you will put people at the centre.

As a thought-leader, you will lead the planning, design, implementation, and evaluation of our educational programmes to deliver curriculum goals. You will help shape our practices in a collaborative environment ensuring a coherent, balanced and inclusive curriculum that meets the diverse needs of our students with many cultures, interests and talents.

You are fully at ease engaging with students, staff, and parents, as a digitally-savvy, big-picture thinker, who brings the importance of Tikanga Māori creatively and effectively into wider school culture. You will be proficient in engaging people across all areas of the school. You’re already well-regarded by your peers for shaping school culture, supporting teaching staff with progressive and modern learning practices, harnessing the strengths with respect for each individual, in the best interests of the school.

We are proud of our school, and like you, we are excited about this opportunity.
