Kia ora, greetings to you all.

Welcome to Central Hawke’s Bay College, a school that focuses on opportunity and achievement, a place where students are encouraged and supported to excel.

One of the most important decisions that any family makes is the school they choose for their children’s education. At Central Hawke’s Bay College we believe that we offer a quality education that has been tailored to meet the needs of the young people of CHB district. The ongoing involvement of our students in a wide range of academic, sporting and cultural endeavours is well known within the community. The selection of excellent staff and a willingness to be innovative have all contributed to the high level of success achieved by students at the school.

The challenge to ‘Achieve With Honour” as our school motto states is supported by a holistic approach to personal learning. Academic success is provided through classroom programmes which are rich and engaging, and the range of cultural, sporting and performance opportunities provides a huge number of opportunities that allow every student access to an environment where they can participate and excel. We challenge students to set high expectations for themselves and support them to achieve at the highest level and be the best they can be.

In all it does, Central Hawke’s Bay College seeks to personalise the learning experience for every student. Group teachers and Deans, supported by experienced counsellors; provide quality pastoral care to ensure that students are supported to make the transition in secondary school. The Senior Leadership Team operates an open door policy and welcome families to come in and talk about their young people’s education. We view that effective schooling is a three way dynamic, with the young person, their family and the school working together to contribute to the ‘triangle of success’ for each child.

The goal of experiencing tertiary study is achieved by many of our school leavers, as well as supporting those who choose to work locally. We are committed to ensuring that every student receives the skills, knowledge and experience that will allow them to take the next step in their lives when they leave Central Hawke’s Bay College. We believe we give our students the necessary tools to have a choice about their future.

By choosing Central Hawke’s Bay College you are selecting a school that is committed to ensuring your children reach their full potential. I invite you to explore our web site and find out more about what we have to offer.

Join us on our mission to challenge, inspire and enable the potential of tomorrow, today.
