With a roll of approximately 680 students, we are a vibrant and successful co-educational secondary school in Levin, located an hour north of Wellington. The school’s inclusive culture and progressive, future-focused curriculum offers students and staff a range of unique learning opportunities. We encourage applicants to learn more about our curriculum by visiting our website.

Levin has a great central location! Located in the lower North Island (95km north of the capital city Wellington), Levin is a 5–10 minute drive to beaches, a lake and walking tracks in the Tararua Ranges – a great spot for those who love being outdoors. Levin has a population of 20,000 (with high growth predicted over the next 10 years) and has all the amenities you could ever need. The neighbouring Kapiti Coast is also a favourite destination for many with its beaches, cafes and attractive lifestyle options. 

Due to the retirement of our experienced and much loved incumbent, we are seeking an innovative, passionate and highly creative HOD social sciences. You will lead an experienced team of outstanding teachers, all of whom are committed to supporting every student to reach their full potential. There will also be the opportunity to tailor our elective programme to suit your own strengths and passions, and you will receive strong support from an enthusiastic and culturally responsive senior leadership team and staff. Please state which humanities subjects you can offer at both junior and/or senior level. Position to commence at the start of term 1, 2022.
