Student Services

At Takapuna Grammar School we understand the complexities of life as a teenager. The students benefit from our ‘wraparound’ approach to their wide range of well being needs. This support may be in the areas of social pressures, mental and emotional stresses, barriers to learning, health issues, resolving conflict and family crisis. We have a dedicated team of pastoral care professionals working together to help our students navigate their way into adulthood.

The Student Services department includes - Deputy Principal, 2 x Deans at each year level, Student Services Manager, Specialised Counsellors, Hauora Co-ordinator, Registered Nurse, Physiotherapist (Physio in Schools) and Attendance Officer.

Report an Absence

Our preference is for parents/caregivers to now use the Report an Absence link to explain student absences.

Absences should be submitted by 8.30am.

Absences can still be submitted via email ( but we do encourage parents to use the link above instead as this email address will no longer be monitored every day.
