A teacher at King’s will embody a specific set of values, and thrive in an environment which supports these very values.

At King's, we value: 

The pursuit of learning

Our teachers are dedicated to eliciting notions of curiosity and academic rigour in our students. They encourage enquiry within a wide range of engaging activities and material to design future learning.


Our teachers know and understand akonga – navigating seamlessly and effectively in Aotearoa New Zealand’s multi-cultural contexts. They can respond to the diverse cultural experiences, strengths, interests and needs of our community with respect, awareness, sensitivity, and understanding.


Our teachers are fair-minded and promote a sense of democracy within King’s College, ultimately encouraging our unique student voice.

Sense of responsibility to their environment

Our teachers are acutely aware of their social and physical environment, and with it comes a sense of responsibility towards understanding bi-culturalism and continuously developing their own thinking and learning, and assisting in others’ learning.

Spirit of adventure

Our teachers have a strong sense of collaboration to create unique experiences for themselves and our students. Their spirit of adventure takes them down the path of novel and different teaching and learning innovations.


Our teachers are visionary in their approach to learning and teaching and the College is supportive of helping them take their learning and teaching to higher, effective and innovative levels.

Commitment to service

Our teachers have a readiness to assist each other and their students, promoting and enhancing the inclusive and supportive teaching and learning environment that characterises King’s. It is this commitment to service that makes us stand out from the crowd.


Underpinning it all is the innate sense of spirituality that the College seeks to promote throughout: well-groundedness, faith and caring. It is our people’s commitment to a strong Anglican ethos and community spirit that enables them to model to our students, strong spiritual values and behaviours.
