We are delighted to welcome you to the Cashmere High School community.

Cashmere High School offers an outstanding learning environment for students to develop the knowledge, skills and dispositions to make a positive contribution to our communities.

We believe that by providing our students with exceptional opportunities and experiences, inside and outside the classroom, we will excite and inspire young people towards their lifelong self-development. It is critical that our students feel connected to our school and we educate our students to see themselves as a critical part of the community they live in.

We are a learning community. We strive to offer the highest quality teaching and learning programmes for our students. We embrace innovation, creativity and best practice teaching which allows for an academically rich environment. Our number one asset are our teachers, who are absolutely committed to building positive relationships, crafting curriculum and leading a classroom that engages students.
