Welcome to He Tīwai Mātauranga

At our coeducational, two-year school catering for about 550 local and international students aged 11-13 years, we strive to provide a future-focused education for every child.

Our school is strongly based on valuing diversity, integrity, creativity and excellence. We want every student to thrive and be the best they can be in an environment where there is a real emphasis on supportive, caring, and encouraging relationships.

Early adolescence is a unique and special time of immense physical, intellectual, emotional, and social development. These changes create specific needs and challenges that are significantly different from the needs of younger children or older adolescents. Our outstanding team of highly qualified, experienced, and skilled teachers are specialists in working with students in their early adolescence.

We provide a wide range of opportunities for every student in the visual and performing arts, sport, leadership, clubs, and in all academic areas.

We welcome international students to our school community. We believe all our students benefit from learning and developing alongside students from a wide range of cultures and backgrounds.
