Aorere College

Secondary (Years 9-13, approx age 13-17)

Aorere College is located in the southern part of Auckland close to the Auckland International Airport. Surrounded by dormant volcanoes, coastlines, mountains, lively night markets, parks and reserves. The college is within the upcoming Manukau area with easy access to shops, malls, cinemas, Rainbow’s End theme park, skate-park, bowling, pools, sporting activities and more.

Auckland is one of the world’s most diverse cities and the Polynesian capital of the world. International students will gain a very unique and immersive cultural experience, learning local customs, participating in Polyfest that celebrates the many cultures of Auckland and mingling with students from different ethnic backgrounds while attaining an international qualification.

Students are the heart of our school and they continue to enjoy success across the wide range of opportunities on offer, displaying pride and commitment. Our vision is “Working closely with our community to grow high-achieving young men and women with the character, confidence and qualifications for future success.”

We provide a safe and caring environment to which our students want to belong. Our motto 'Virtus Caelum Recludit' (Character opens the way to the heavens), reflects the overall goal of the college in building young men and women of character, aspiring to the greatest heights in their own achievement, yet still prepared to serve the wider community.

Some of our most famous Alumni include the All Black legend Keven Mealamu, world famous musical trio Sole Mio, University of Auckland Professor and Neuroscientist Dr Donna Addis and the late Professor Dr Andrew Pullan.
