ACG Tauranga is proud to be part of a worldwide network of schools that offer the Cambridge Pathway. Our students graduate with prestigious, internationally-recognised qualifications, and the best educational and career pathways. We equip students with the knowledge, skills and attributes they need for success in their chosen field, anywhere in the world.

School starts at 8:30am and finishes at 3:15pm. There is a 15 minute transition period for Year 1 to Year 4 students at the start and end of the day.

Extension is managed through groupings within the classroom environment, making use of the many opportunities provided within the Cambridge Curriculum. In addition students will have the opportunity to engage in a range of age appropriate activities, events and competitions. Extension beyond the classroom, within specific subjects, are managed on an individual basis and in close collaboration with families. Our aim is to encourage and enable our students to be the very best version of themselves in all aspects of school life.

At ACG Tauranga our aim is to encourage and enable our students to reach individual success. Careful tracking, intervention and monitoring is fundamental to this process. Individualised support within the classroom, drop in clinics, holiday workshops and targeted accelerated learning programmes are all available to ensure students are supported through their learning journey.
