Welcome to Hornby High School
Te Huruhuru Ao o Horomaka.
E nga mana, e nga reo, e nga hau e wha, nau mai, haere mai. Haere mai ki te kura,
Kia ora koutou. Talofa. Kia Orana. Malo e lelei. Bula. Fakaalofa atu. Greetings to all.
Hornby High School is a place where student learning and success matter. At our school every student is known and valued as an individual, and personalised pathways – academic, cultural, sporting – are created.
We are proud to be a diverse, friendly school and a place where the needs of each individual student are addressed. We are proud to be a school where all students can make their mark and set their direction for life after secondary school.
Since its opening, our school has had significant community support and, reflecting this, we have a distinctive identity, based on strong family and community relationships.
Hornby High School was established in 1975 after vigorous community requests for a local co-educational secondary school to serve the Hornby community. The school buildings are a mixture of Cebus rooms and permanent classroom blocks. The grounds are attractively landscaped with numerous areas for students to sit, play and enjoy the environment.
The school has superb facilities for all curriculum areas. Specialist rooms
for Science, Technology, Computing, Foods, Music, Art and Drama are well-appointed. The modern, well-appointed auditorium provides an ideal venue for the performing arts.
The library has been developed as the information centre of the school where students can access information through traditional means as well as through networked computers. The school is connected to high-speed broadband which extends to all classrooms. This has opened up exciting opportunities for student learning.
Sports activities are well catered for with the full-sized, heated gymnasium, eight tennis courts, six netball courts and playing fields for all sporting codes.
We hope you enjoy getting to know us better as you look around our website.
