At Tuakau College we are committed to providing the best secondary education for our community. 
Our motto Pai rawa atu i nga mea katoa – the very best in all things sums up our overall vision for the school - to encourage students to strive for excellence in our four cornerstones (kete) of achievement -  academic, sporting, cultural and social

We believe in creating educational opportunities that will prepare our students for their future, irrespective of their background or academic ability.  To achieve this, we offer a wide range of academic course subjects, sports, cultural and social activities. 

Students are supported and encouraged by high quality, dedicated staff who provide the best possible education in a safe and orderly learning environment where they will have many opportunities to discover and  develop their talents.  

Our whanau classes (vertical form classes) allow an ongoing connection between home and school as well as offering a small and welcoming base for students new to the college.  

I extend a warm welcome to you and invite you to come and experience secondary education the Tuakau College way.
