About Us

Mākoura College is a state co-educational school situated in an attractive setting on the east side of Masterton. Our school caters for all students in the Wairarapa.

Mākoura recognises the importance of education being available for all, and responds to this by catering for different needs and learning styles. A Teen Parent Unit including a Child Care Centre is on site, as well as Wairarapa's only Military Services Academy. The school has academic programmes through to scholarship, transition and gateway courses, a Māori Performing Arts programme, and vibrant Music, Dance, Arts and Photography classes to complement the core curriculum and engage and stimulate students. Mākoura has its very own student radio station.

Mākoura students participate in a range of sporting and cultural opportunities outside the classroom.

Mākoura College has a clear direction that includes being inclusive of all who come through the gate; a focus on strengths as opposed to weaknesses, a focus on building relationships; and a focus on delivering a meaningful curriculum designed to meet the needs and interests of students.
