Welcome to Te Puru School,

tucked between the sea and the bush on the beautiful Coromandel coast. 

Our rich learning programmes reflect our environment.

Through the development of our local curriculum, we want to engage our learners, spark their passions and provide exciting opportunities.


Through our draft Te Puru School Values:


Kaitiakitanga - we look after our environment;

Whanaungatanga - we all belong;

Manaakitanga - we look after one another and we are kind;

Arohatanga - we respect ourselves and we are respectful of one another;

Tūkaha - we are resilient and we are strong;


we are developing a culture of belonging to our place, an awareness of our unique environment and empowering our students to be the best learners they can be.

We extend a warm welcome to the Te Puru School Community.
