Work for us

St Paul’s Collegiate School prepare students for life beyond high school; our staff make a difference and help shape the lives of our country’s future leaders.

The school has a strong reputation within NZ secondary schools for academia, sport, spirituality and culture and has a national profile for innovation and leadership in the Agribusiness area.

The main campus, located in Hamilton in the central North Island, has impressive facilities situated in an attractive setting. The school operates an outdoor education experience for its Year 10 students at Tihoi Venture School.

St Paul’s has a proven tradition of pastoral care and promotes a holistic approach to the education of its students. Teachers are encouraged to pursue personal development and training to keep them at the forefront of effective teaching practice.

With a school roll currently around 800, St Paul’s students are highly motivated and focused, learning in classes that have a low student-to-teacher ratio. Small class sizes give teachers the opportunity to really get to know each and every student and deliver their lessons accordingly.

St Paul’s staff are enthusiastic, committed, and hardworking and genuinely enjoy the challenges associated with working with teenagers. Become part of the St Paul’s team and make an impact on the paths these young people take.
