Awatapu College

High School

About Us

We value innovation in teaching and learning. Our school is a vibrant and diverse community with a strong focus on meeting the individual needs of our student body. This is what, Lisa Onland (a previous Dux), had to say about Awatapu:

“There was always an option, always someone there to help you every step of the way, independence and space to grow and achieve great things. They always believe in you to do your best.”

Our Learning Support and Special Abilities (Extension) programmes ensure that all students’ learning needs are identified and addressed. A broad curriculum offers extensive subject choices for all students. Academically advanced senior students are studying subjects through Massey University while completing their NCEA qualifications. A wide range of co-curricular activities enables students to follow their personal strengths in sport and culture. Achievement is celebrated at school assemblies, which are led by the student leaders.
