Principal, ACG Tauranga

It is an absolute privilege to welcome you to our ACG Tauranga community.

We are a school where diversity is encouraged and celebrated, and where people are always at the heart of what we do. We are incredibly proud of who we are.

Building strong and meaningful relationships with our families, we work side by side to develop confident, capable young people who don’t just succeed at school, but at life. Working collaboratively with families, we aim to create positive connections, enabling open communication and high levels of trust.

ACG Tauranga students are kind, caring and inclusive young people who appreciate relationships as fundamental to their own well-being and success. They value learning and respect the importance of hard work, knowing what success looks like for them as individuals. Understanding the importance of being a connected member of our school community, our students love getting involved. Whether participating in Sport, Arts, Leadership, Community or Outdoor Education opportunities, they always give their all. Supporting each other is simply what they do.

ACG Tauranga delivers the internationally recognised Cambridge Curriculum from Year 1 all the way through to Year 13. Families can be confident in the knowledge that learning programmes are both robust and deliberate. Teachers are highly skilled and expert within their subject area. All ACG Tauranga staff, whether in the classroom, administration or looking after the school grounds, are completely committed to the well-being and growth of each and every student. We know our students, care about them as young people and will always go above and beyond to support them.

ACG Tauranga is so much more than a school; it is a family.
