St Paul’s College in Ponsonby is a Catholic boys’ school providing an outstanding education from Y7–13. The college has a proud Marist Champagnat history and tradition, a growing roll and a strong reputation in the local community. 

The highly experienced and well-regarded headmaster is retiring and the college board of trustees is seeking an inspirational, courageous and motivational leader to continue and enhance the excellent work done by the current headmaster.

This role will provide the opportunity and challenge for an ambitious, strategic leader to develop the great potential of the school and to shape its future. 

The new headmaster must have the intellect, imagination and experience to support and challenge staff, students and board of trustees to continue to move and improve the school. 

This is a tagged position and a willingness and ability to take part in religious instruction appropriate to the special character of the school shall be a condition of appointment. Additionally, the person approved will accept and recognise a responsibility to promote and enhance the special character of St Paul’s College.

An information pack is available from the school.
