Located in Hastings, Hawke’s Bay on a stunning 22ha park-like campus, our college is a state-integrated boarding and day school for boys from Y7–13. Since its establishment in 1953 Lindisfarne has become recognised as one of New Zealand’s leading schools, realizing its vision of preparing students for a future that demands high levels of personal confidence and a diversity of skills. High quality staff both teaching and non-teaching, an intense focus on the development of the ‘whole student’ enabled by small class sizes and individualised learning, are recognised by the community as integral strengths of the college.
A rare opportunity for an experienced leader to work closely with the Board of Trustees and College Council to provide exceptional strategic and operational leadership, delivering a pre-eminent and aspirational education experience.
