A mid-size, coeducational, Y9–13 school with a student population of just over 900 – 51% are Māori, 43% are Pakeha. Our aim is to put the articles of Te Tiriti o Waitangi at the centre of teaching and learning and to be a proud bicultural school. We know our students do their best when we reflect and value their culture, identity and language. We focus on building strong relationships and, as a school, we have a collective and shared commitment to encourage student success and wellness. We are small enough for everyone to know each other yet big enough to provide a broad curriculum and multiple pathway choices. The school has many purpose-built facilities. We are a member of the local Kāhui Ako.

Our school provides an ideal opportunity for a leader with a deep commitment to education, who believes in the difference quality teaching and learning can make in lives of young people and their families and whānau.

We are looking for an engaging and inspiring leader who can:

  • Unite our school community and build even stronger partnerships with parents, whānau, marae and the local community
  • Build successful teams and encourage a culture that values a strong sense of ‘team’
  • Maintain a strong focus on student achievement and future-focused teaching and learning; where all students can consistently access rich learning opportunities
  • Attract, develop and mentor a highly effective team of outstanding leaders and teachers
  • Demonstrate the skills and attitudes to connect with and uphold the articles of Te Tiriti o Waitangi
  • Enjoy working with and for students, show them respect and celebrate them as individuals.
