Ormiston Senior College is one of New Zealand's newest and most forward-thinking senior high schools. We cater for Year 11-13 students (generally aged 15-18 years old). As at February 2015 we have a roll of 467 students and this is growing as the local community grows.
Our students are firmly at the heart of our school. We are focused on preparing and inspiring them to achieve their very best in a global society. Whilst academic excellence is our key focus, we also strive to develop their skills socially, culturally (through sports, art, culture) and globally so that they are able to reach their full potential across a wide range of subjects and interests.
Designed by award-winning architects, our stunning facilities meet the needs of teaching and learning in the 21st century and provides spaces that students and staff enjoy working in. The building sits under one roof around a central, sheltered, north-facing courtyard. The modern and almost industrial style of architecture feels more like a university campus than a traditional school.
