The campus, with 180 students and around 20 staff, is part of a network of OSG schools in New Zealand, and 20 other countries across the globe. The school’s regional headquarters is based nearby in Onehunga, with the campus enjoying a high profile in the OSG community.

Reporting to the Regional Principal (New Zealand and Argentina) and working under the leadership and support of the Regional Management Team offering expert and high-level support in the areas of Curriculum, Administration, HR, Finance, ICT, Property and WHS, the Principal is a key member of the senior educational leadership team, providing educational and academic leadership to staff and students. 

With responsibility for the day-to-day management and professional leadership of the Auckland Campus, the Principal will ensure curriculum delivery focusing on the student as a self-directed learner, the implementation of the school’s policies and programs and the provision of pastoral care. 

Possessing previous leadership experience, ideally as an Assistant/Deputy Principal, Head of School or an equivalent level in curriculum development or teaching and learning, the Principal will have a solid understanding of the NCEA curriculum requirements across Years 3-13 and experience building and managing positive working relationships with staff, students, and parents. 

With an attractive remuneration package on offer, state of the art technology, proven academic performance and small class sizes, this is an excellent opportunity for an experienced educational leader, with an interest in modern teaching methods and technologies. 

Finally, the successful candidate will be given the opportunity to apply for the role of District Principal which, alongside campus leadership responsibilities, includes strategic and operational leadership across our Auckland, Kerikeri and Maungaturoto campuses.
