Sue BlakelyWelcome to Rosehill College, a school of high expectations and high results. We have challenged and encouraged students for more than 40 years and past students include many leaders in a wide range of fields as diverse as medicine, rugby and fashion design.

Our focus is on academic achievement across a broad range of subjects, leading to New Zealand’s national qualifications, the internationally-recognised National Certificate of Educational Achievement (NCEA). It is our expectation that each student who walks through our gates will succeed to the best of their abilities according to their talents, skill and effort.

Our teachers challenge students to think, create and evaluate in positive learning environments. Timely communication with parents and whanau includes them in their son’s or daughter’s learning journey.

The College is well-resourced and modern, with property upgrades including our Sports Centre, Performing Arts Centre and Whare Wananga, Moemoea. Our ICT infrastructure supports wireless access for our students who all have their own e-learning devices.

Students are members of six Houses of about 300 students which create “schools within the school”. Heads of House oversee the academic progress and well-being of their students. They are supported by a comprehensive pastoral care system of two guidance counsellors, Kaimanaaki and nurse.

Learning takes place well beyond the classroom and the College has an extensive range of activities designed to develop and extend cultural, sporting and leadership abilities and potential. These include individual music lessons, stage and concert bands, drama performances and the school production, dance competitions, kapa haka, Samoan performance group, art exhibitions, rugby, netball, hockey, soccer, basketball, tennis, golf and many more.

We invite you to explore our site to learn more about what we offer.
