Sitting atop the Takapuna cliffs and boasting commanding views of Rangitoto Island and the Waitemata Harbour, Takapuna Grammar School possesses presence and history. Students enjoy a learning environment which encompasses twelve hectares of groomed grounds and playing fields with a combination of heritage protected buildings and modern built-for-purpose educational blocks.
Located in the safest area in New Zealand - Auckland’s North Shore, the school lies a 40 minute walk or five minute bus ride from the seaside village of Devonport which offers an independent movie theatre, cafés and a newly completed modern library.
Auckland’s CBD is a pleasant twelve minute ferry ride from Devonport Wharf. The shopping and business hub of Takapuna is just a ten minute bus ride away. Aucklanders love to play on the stunning harbour and waters surrounding their city and because of this passion for sailing and water sports Auckland is known as the City of Sails. North Shore City claims the closest proximity to the city’s sparkling waters and is thus often referred to as the jewel in Auckland’s crown. Easily accessible from the North Shore, the wider Auckland area offers beautiful scenery and activities including bush walks, forest mountain biking tracks and surfing at the black sand, wild rugged beaches of the west coast.
