Due to roll growth, current and future, we have a need to expand our leadership team. We are seeking an innovative, collaborative leader who is passionate about both academic and personal success. The successful candidate will join our dynamic senior leadership team to support the leadership of our school kaupapa (our charter, vision and strategic plan). Critical to our school philosophy is to build leadership in others through coaching and mentoring.

In our school we work to provide contextual opportunities of learning that give learners choice and agency, whilst still gaining necessary skills, knowledge and qualifications. We believe in the concept of ako and that we are all learners. Collaborative practice is fundamental to our curriculum and as educators we know we can always learn from each other. All of our senior leadership team members have allocated teaching time and contribute as a teacher to our curriculum.

We are a restorative practices school and believe strongly in building and enhancing positive professional relationships with young people. All teachers are expected to be involved in our whānau system and will be supported to provide awhi, care, mentoring and academic counselling to students in a warm and demanding way.

As a combined schools model, it is integral that the deputy principal can collaborate effectively and lead for success in this purposefully integrated environment to ensure a seamless education for students from Y7–13. Our school is community-focused and we encourage all staff to contribute to the varied learning opportunities that are offered to students in such an environment.

There will be no specific portfolio advertised for this role, however we will negotiate roles and specific responsibilities based on the team strengths and areas that leaders will want to learn in.
