We are a high achieving, forward-thinking school, filled with passionate educators, and keen learners. Our deputy principals keep being promoted into principalships, so we need a new DP to start in 2022. 

Our school believes strongly in learner agency, learning through play and inclusive, collaborative practice. It is important that our new DP values these beliefs.

This is a fabulous opportunity for someone to extend and develop their leadership experience. We invite applications from people who have a strong background in education, and an in-depth understanding of effective teaching and learning, reflecting the NZC.

We are looking for a positive, flexible, open minded person with a growth mindset and a passion for education. The successful applicant will be committed to developing high trust relationships with students, staff and whānau. There will be a teaching component in this position which will be negotiated each year. Areas of responsibility will be negotiated with the successful applicant, however SENCO and ICT strengths would be an advantage.

How to apply

Please complete an application form which can be found following the instructions on our school website. We would encourage applicants to submit a video introduction in lieu of a covering letter in their application. Please email CV and application form
