Commitment. Achievement. Resilience. Respect.

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 personalized 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 at the forefront of everything we do. We are proud to be a school where all students can make their mark and set their direction for life after secondary school.

Hornby High School is also proud to be one of seven fantastic schools (the Uru Mānuka Cluster) which have been part of Manaiakalani Outreach Programme since 2015. We work collaboratively to accelerate student achievement through the Learn, Create, Share, pedagogy. Our aim is for students to be empowered, visible, and connected, and whose learning can occur any where, any time. Visit the Uru Mānuka website:
