A great place to work. Immersed in the 'behind the scenes' of education the staff work tirelessly to ensure that best practice, guidelines and the interests of the children in education are at the forefront of their agendas.

Support Assistant (Former Employee) - Rotorua, Bay of Plenty
This was my first experience in with working with older children, previously worked with early years and
primary.


This was also my first experience of Academy School the children got to pick areas which they had strengths and interest. Made good learning choices.



On going professional development. Ever evolving to meet the needs of staff and pupils within the school. Great support from colleagues and senior management alike.
