Applications are invited for the position of Principal of Ormiston Senior College.

The college, which opened in 2011 and enjoys excellent flexible teaching and learning facilities, is adjacent to the campuses of Ormiston Junior School and Ormiston Primary. Catering for students in Y11–13, the college is future-focused, places a strong emphasis on personalising learning and utilises a Learning Advisor structure to provide individual mentoring. A robust collegial and transparent culture underpins the ethos of the school.

Situated in Flat Bush, one of Auckland's fastest growing and most diverse communities, the 2022 Ormiston Senior College roll will be just under 1,000 students. This is set to grow rapidly and major extensions have Ministry approval. The school received a very positive ERO report in 2018 placing it on a 4-5 year review cycle.

To be successful you will:

  • Have in-depth pedagogical and NZ Curriculum knowledge in relation to the senior secondary area.
  • Have highly effective communication with all stakeholders.
  • Foster strong relationships with and instil confidence in learners, staff and community.
  • Create a positive school culture with a highly engaged workforce who are focused on enabling learners to thrive.
  • Have a proven track record of lifting achievement standards and competencies for all learners.
  • Demonstrate a commitment to Te Tiriti o Waitangi, value diversity and demonstrate a high degree of cultural competence and responsiveness.

Position begins at the start of term 2, 2022.
