021001 Life At Kings Working At Kings Message From The Headmaster Hero Image

Welcome to King’s College, the home of outstanding educational opportunities for the young men and women who enter our gates.

The College is a special place for me physically and spiritually. We see more than 1,000 students each year walk through our doors with a real sense of achievement and belonging. It’s a place underpinned by a powerful sense of spirituality, where our Chapel and what it stands for is utmost in our minds and guides our actions.

But what completes the College is our people. Our teaching and support staff keep it thriving day in, day out. They ensure our students gain more than just a top-level education. They gave students a sense of purpose and desire to make a difference in whatever field they choose.

The College has an effective teaching and learning philosophy and we like to bring our students, staff, and parents and guardians in on these conversations as we work to really shape what the “best all-round education” looks like in a modern world.

We are committed to maintaining the College’s traditions, but at the same time ensuring the teaching and learning experience is supported by the very best and latest modern technology. In doing so, we are preparing our staff for dynamic teaching careers.

Staff at King’s don’t just ‘teach’ in the simplest sense of the verb, they are part of something bigger. They help shape the future of education in New Zealand.

Staff who enter our doors do so with clarity and the knowledge that their ideas and talent will be nurtured. They will be fully supported by tailored professional development initiatives to build their teaching skills. The teaching landscape is in a state of change and we believe we can be at the forefront of that change, creating teaching careers for those people who want to be on this evolving journey with us.

We take pride in the energy, passion and creativity of our staff who create a co-operative working environment for all involved. Co-operative leadership is a core value in ensuring our vision of encouraging the “best all-round education” is kept alive.

I welcome your interest in contributing to our teaching and learning commitment at King's College.

Virtus Pollet.
