A truly unique leadership role

Rarely does a leadership opportunity like this arise.

We are a thriving and aspirational secondary school located in Warkworth…a beautiful, unique, culturally diverse and rapidly expanding area 40 minutes north of the Auckland CBD.

Referred to simply as Our Place, the college is looking for an outstanding principal with unique leadership and visionary skills to build on their amazing culture and community and to manage their anticipated growth successfully. Are you ready for the challenge?

From humble beginnings in 1957, our college now boasts a roll of 1,500 coeducational students and is projected to double in size over the next 10 years. The college enjoys academic results well above its decile 7 standing and has attained excellence in sports, performing arts, cultural diversity and outdoor learning. With a series of successful ERO reports and outstanding modern facilities, we offer a truly world class learning environment.

With the retirement of their long-serving and much-loved principal, the Board now invites applications from accomplished educational leaders who can deliver a unique vision for this very special college.

Our new principal:

Demonstrate exceptional leadership skills to develop a culture of excellence and belonging.

An innovative, proactive and inspirational leader, you will share and deliver the Board’s ambitious plans to become one of the leading colleges in NZ.

A visionary thinker, you will be passionate about sustainability and will relish the outdoor uniqueness of the college.

Committed, and driven to see all students thrive and excel in all areas of life – wellbeing, academic, social, spiritual and emotional.

Strongly embedded in our community, you will be visible, approachable, charismatic and will enhance the college’s reputation by showcasing its enviable successes.

Possess a strong moral compass and develop a culture of pride and wellbeing in the college through making Our Place, Your Place.
