We are located an easy 25 minute drive from sunny Gisborne, in the Tairawhiti District.

We are a well-resourced school with great facilities and modern learning environments.

We have small class sizes particularly at senior levels and will be delivering the curriculum through individual learning plans within small groups.

The school is under new, innovative and strong management and leadership with a clear direction and focus on lifting the achievement of all our learners.

This is a unique leadership and teaching opportunity for a talented, adaptable and passionate secondary school teacher preferably with maths and/or science subject strengths – although applicants with other curriculum and subject strengths are also most welcome to apply.
