our profile

Māori students respond to the Anamata learning approach.  Our student roll consistently maintains a very high Māori population and continues to provide the support and environment required to ensure success for Maori students. 

Our iwi-focused approach combined with culturally responsive teaching practices, learning environments and pastoral support for learners, attracts and retains  Māori learners, many of whom go on to enjoy greater success in higher levels of study.

And our destination data shows us that almost all of our students gain employment or are engaged in further education and training.
