Our Team

Our staff at Waihi are indeed what makes the experience so enriching and successful, with a real family atmosphere.

Our academic team are proven performers in the classroom and our results speak for themselves.  Our class sizes number no more than 20 and this allows our team to work alongside the individual student and ensure we nurture their academic success. We offer specialist science lessons, small, streamed math groups and we place a strong focus on literacy and study - ensuring the fundamentals of your child’s future education are well embedded for their journey onto high school.

Our committed pastoral care team including House Master, Matrons and Gap Tutors are ably supported by our residential team who live and work alongside our boarders whilst raising their own families on-site also.

We are also lucky to have the amazing kitchen staff, itinerant music tutors, our lovely office staff and not forgetting Sharpie the Caretaker – a favourite with the children!
