Kaipara College is a growing, future-focused, innovative school only 35 minutes northwest of the Auckland CBD, situated in a pleasant semi-rural setting. 

We are seeking an enthusiastic, visionary and motivated Principal who will inspire our staff to do their very best every day to foster a joy of learning. 

Our school vision is built on two pillars – Belonging and Success. We invite you to view a short video where our students tell you in their own words what those pillars mean to them: https://www.kaipara.school.nz/our-school/our-school-an-introduction.

This is an exciting time to join Kaipara College with a major multi-million dollar property development about to get underway which will transform the school into a future-fit facility, capable of equipping our next generation of students for the world ahead of them. 

With a roll approaching 900 we are small enough to pay care and attention to each of our students, yet large enough to offer choice and agency to explore their own areas of interest, from academic subjects, to sports, technology and the arts. 

Our next Principal will continue the substantial work made to date in building a connected curriculum with a focus on raising student achievement. To be the right fit for our school you will be passionate about creating a culture that values and encourages an individual’s ability for academic and personal success.  

You will be a culturally-responsive, empowering leader, with strong values and moral purpose. You will be an adept and effective communicator who values whanaungatanga and relationship-building both within the school and within the community that supports and surrounds it.  

You will have the support of a committed Board of Trustees who values the hauora and wellbeing of staff and students and has genuine care for the College community. 

How to apply

Candidates are invited to tour the school before the end of term 2. Shortlisted candidates will be interviewed on Saturday 24 July.
