Joining Rangi at Year 7 provides girls the best in intermediate school level education, whilst ensuring a seamless journey into her secondary school years. As a true Years 7 to 13 school we offer specialist teachers for each subject from Year 7, and access to programs and resources such as Personal Development Plans, the Care and Development Network and extra-curricular offerings usually only accessible at high-school level. Mathematics classes are banded from Year 7, and girls are required to take four different languages over Years 7 and 8. Once girls reach Year 8, they take part in the William Pike Challenge Award programme (WPCA) promoting resilience and adventure. The WPCA clearly connects with the Rangi values of Aroha and Endeavour, the focus of our Years 7 and 8 Wellbeing programmes.
Our Years 7 & 8 classes are all limited to 22 students, and are single cell based learning environments.
We strongly believe this smaller, more personalised approach to learning offers our girls the best opportunity to best prepare for Year 9 and beyond.
Joining Rangi at Year 7 ensures your daughter can transition automatically into Year 9, provided standards that are met at her Year 7 entrance to Rangi are continued throughout her Year 7 & 8 years.
Enrolment in Year 7 is only available to a maximum of 44 students per year, and demand for places is high. If you would like to consider Rangi Ruru for your daughter at Year 7 we strongly encourage you to enrol or contact our Enrolments Team prior to your daughter starting her Year 5 year.
