Spotswood College is proud to be a leading school of modern and innovative learning. We have a clear vision of a 21st Century learning environment where learning has a purpose,  is planned with students and is pursued through relevant and authentic contexts.

This means students will have a personalised programme of learning that meets their individual needs, strengths and passions. Learning opportunities include a wide range of cultural, arts, sporting, community connect, socially conscious and entrepreneurial activities. The NZ Curriculum drives our teaching and learning and results in programmes that give us wide coverage of all learning areas and allows learners to gain a full range of qualifications.

 

With our students consistently achieving well in NCEA National qualifications we are also able to offer connectivity to a range of tertiary programmes, apprenticeships, internships, entrepreneurship and employment. The culture of the school is based on a whanau or family like structure, creating a safe environment where students gain a sense of belonging.  Powerful partnerships with our families and wider community are key aspects of our learning community. We are confident our young people will be well equipped with skills to be positioned to be amongst the entrepreneurs, designers, innovators, shakers, movers and leaders to build a better world for tomorrow.
