Principal´s Welcome

The history of Takapuna Grammar School is characterised by a focus on academic achievement and personal excellence. This focus continues today and underpins the future direction of the school. Takapuna Grammar School’s priority is quality teaching and learning. It is the aspiration for personal excellence that motivates the programmes offered by our school, enabling all students the opportunity to realise their potential. The commitment to academic excellence has enabled the school to realise outstanding academic performance, both nationally and internationally.

Takapuna Grammar School also offers students a wide range of co-curricular activities which are essential to developing personal skills of collegiality, competitiveness and excellence. Takapuna Grammar School is a high performer in sporting and cultural pursuits. We have a strong belief in the students’ individual capacity to extend their own experience and ability through commitment and involvement in the wide range of opportunities offered. We are recognised as a leading performer in co-curricular competitions.

Places at our school are highly sought after. Parents and students are attracted to the culture of traditional values and expectations relating to academic excellence, uniform, discipline and participation in sporting and cultural activities. It is this climate of expectation and the supportive environment which sees Takapuna Grammar School as the desirable school on Auckland’s North Shore.
