Situated in the heart of Central Otago, our primary school is located on a spacious site with established trees and innovative learning environments on the banks of the Clutha Mata-au River.

This is an exciting opportunity for an experienced educator and proven leader to take the helm, as our current principal retires after more than a decade of exceptional leadership.

Our school and community have a village like feel, and we are continuing to experience roll growth. 

At our school you will be surrounded by a dedicated team and welcomed by a supportive community, who live our shared vision of encouraging all learners to be the best they can be, as identified in our latest ERO report: Clyde School - 20/12/2018

We require an educational leader who will: 

  • Have the experience to lead our school forward, with a focus on quality teaching and learning
  • Have a strong vision for learning at our school which has student agency at its centre
  • Be proud of the way our community school values each individual. We think of ourselves as the ‘Clyde school family’ and require an educational leader who will embrace this
  • Actively lead our school’s motto, which is ‘Learning for Life: Akoranga mo ake ake’. Our goals are to establish excellent foundation skills in literacy and numeracy and to empower each individual to be a connected, ambitious, respectful and enthusiastic member of our community.
