Welcome to Mahurangi College.


It is always a pleasure to embrace visitors to our college and to share our amazing people and place. Unfortunately, this year we had to cancel our Open Day due to Covid-19.


We know this is usually an opportunity for families of Year 6 students that are transitioning to the college to ask questions and learn more about how the college works, therefore in place of our Open Day our Year 7 and 8 Media team have created a couple of clips of our homerooms and STEAM rooms (coming soon) for you to watch.


Alongside this is our 360 tour which shows a slice of life on a day at Mahurangi College.


360 TOUR

Our closing date for new Year 7 enrolments was Friday 4 September. If you have not submitted your child’s application yet, can you please do so as soon as possible as planning is well underway for 2021.


If you are not planning to enrol your child at Mahurangi College, we would be grateful if you could please advise us by email (below).

What will school look like for your child when they first arrive at this large and bustling campus next year?

All new students will be invited to attend the following events (times to be advised):


Orientation Day - Friday 6 November

Year 7 students 2021 will be invited to our Orientation day. This gives the students the opportunity to familiarise themselves with the campus and speak with some of our current Year 7 students about how the timetable and classes operate.

Information Morning - Friday, 6 November

Year 9 to 13 2021 students will be invited to our information morning where they will learn more about the details of becoming a Mahurangi student. 

Learning Needs and Interviews - Contact Us

If you have a child with diverse learning needs and would like to discuss how the school can best cater for them, please email our Enrolment Administrator Toni Beer (below) for an interview request form. We will advise you of the date in advance when confirmed.

Uniform Fit Day - Thursday, 26 November

Information about our uniform can be found on our website. We will be holding a Uniform Fit Day on Thursday, 26 November which is held by our parent group ‘Friends of Mahu’ which is very helpful when buying our uniform for the first time. We will notify you closer to the time when bookings are available.

Information Packs - Early December

A full information pack will be sent to all new students early December outlining start dates, stationery etc.

YEAR 7 + 8

Students are taught in their homeroom and there is an element of discovery embedded within their learning. Inquiry frameworks and thinking tools feature within the students’ day. Alongside this, there is also an important focus on ensuring the basics in literacy and numeracy are covered and that the students have strong foundations in both.




STEAM is a programme that combines the Technologies and the Arts curriculum and incorporates elements of Science, Maths and Engineering.

YEAR 9 + 10

Year 9 and 10 programmes are taught by our secondary teachers and period by period organisation. These years are a strong foundation to gain skills and knowledge in separate subject areas.

YEAR 11-13

Senior students are offered NCEA programmes.


    Becoming involved with Friends of Mahu is a great way to connect with and support the school community.
