Hauraki Plains College is a rural school situated in the township of Ngatea, central to the Waikato, Tauranga, Auckland and the Coromandel. The 900 students (Years 9 to 13) enjoy the benefits of a rural community school in spacious grounds with well maintained facilities.

We believe we are more than a school and we strive to develop the character, capabilities and civic responsibility of our students. The following are important to us:

  • High expectations and the pursuit of academic excellence through a ‘no blame, no excuses’ learning culture. Our NCEA pass rates are consistently over 95% at all levels.
  • An emphasis on traditional values and self discipline achieved through a relentless focus on respect, responsibility for one’s actions, being considerate of others and striving for personal best.
  • A “one student at a time” approach to monitoring students as they establish a learning and career pathway through college and beyond.
  • Developing the talents and interests of all our young people through a wide range of learning programmes, sporting, cultural, leadership and service experiences and opportunities.
