We are a relatively small school, roll approximately 300, and offer some unique experiences. The relatively small nature of our roll allows us to offer small class sizes. Year 11 – 13 classes typically 8 – 12 students.

The area is still home to its original inhabitants, the Tainui people, to whom the Waikato River and Taupiri Mountain are sacred. Our college roll is presently 72% Maori. Camps, trips, extra curricular activities (drama, dance, kapa haka) and participation in a range of sports is are both enjoyed and encouraged by all. We are close to two major New Zealand cities, Hamilton 35 km to the south and Auckland, NZ’s largest city (population in excess of one million), is approximately 90 km north. We are less than one hour's drive to either the West or East coasts and are ideally situated for commuters.
