Live by faith, strive for excellence

Catholic Cathedral College, Christchurch has an exciting opportunity for a new principal to lead our culturally rich Y7–15 co-educational Catholic state-integrated school.

Our college is a successful and progressive school. Our students consistently produce excellent academic results (100% pass rate for NCEA level 2 in 2020). They also shine in sporting pursuits at both national and international level, as well as being talented participants in cultural events such as music, public speaking, kapa haka and drama.

We are looking for a principal who is a strong cultural fit and who can maintain and strengthen relationships within our community as well as support and grow the college and its successes.

We require a Catholic educational leader who will establish positive relationships with students and staff, and who will need to be committed to the bi-cultural nature of Aotearoa/New Zealand and to the multi-cultural nature of our school. You must be a caring professional who can develop our personalised approach to learning where each student is valued for who they are. You will lead a highly effective and committed team and a school in an excellent position.

As required under the Education and Training Act 2020, our new principal must have a willingness and an ability take part in religious instruction appropriate to the Catholic special character of the college and must accept and recognise a responsibility to maintain and preserve the special character of the school. The principal therefore must be able to assume leadership of the religious aspects of the college and be a suitable role model for staff, students and whānau in a Catholic school.
