Vacancy reference #: 1HA8Ae

We are a school of 1,340 (and growing) Y7–10 students and over 90 staff in the northern most suburb of Hamilton.

We have a position available in this key leadership role of hapū leader to start during term 3. This is an exciting opportunity for someone to join a team of 9 other leaders in similar positions within our school!

Strength in the area of literacy and English learning would be an advantage for this position. Applicants with other specialist areas/strengths will be considered.

Our school provides a unique, challenging and enjoyable environment to teach in. We place significant emphasis on working and learning collaboratively.

A critical consideration for all applicants is the expectation that all teachers will be willing to teach in collaborative teams within an integrated approach at all levels of the school (Y7–10). We are all exceptionally supportive of encouraging successful applicants to modify and adapt their practice. If you are an amazing teacher in your current environment, you will continue to be amazing at our school!

This role is like a hybrid of the roles of a year level dean and a team/curriculum leader in other more traditional settings. Key responsibilities include leading a team of teachers in their role as a learning advisor, ensuring the delivery of our learning advisory curriculum reflects our intended objectives within your hapū (around 80–100 Y7–10 students and 4–5 teachers), and supporting the implementation of our behaviour management system within your hapū. 

School visits prior to application are encouraged. Come and check us out!
