Thames High School is situated at the gateway of the beautiful Coromandel Peninsula where you can enjoy a friendly semi-rural and coastal environment within 90 minutes of driving to Auckland, Hamilton, and Tauranga.  Real estate is generally more affordable than in these main centres.  There may be the possibility to offer our schoolhouse for transition housing too.  Our area abounds in tramping, boating, camping, and many other outdoor activities.

Our priority is to ensure equity and excellence for all, and we have a strong commitment to cultural responsiveness and Te Tiriti o Waitangi.
