Joining Rangi Ruru at Year 9, your daughter will join a diverse and inclusive sisterhood. At Years 9 to 13 our year groups are limited to six classes of between 20 and 25 students, with total year group sizes limited to around 125. Keeping our year groups smaller ensures stronger connections between students, their teachers and other staff such as Deans and support staff.
Our Years 9 to 13 classes are all limited to 25 students, with most less than 22, and are single cell based learning environments.
We strongly believe this smaller, more personalised approach to learning offers our students the best opportunity to best prepare for NCEA and life beyond Rangi Ruru. Our curriculum offering includes opportunities for extension not only in core subjects such as Maths and English, but holistically through our High Performance Learning Coordinator.
As a true Years 7 to 13 school, we do not have a “middle school” or “senior school”, as each year level has their own specific requirements, and we tailor each class for the learning level required. Approaching learning based on a Years 7 to 13 model means a smoother transition throughout years, and also means students at all levels have access to a full range of curricular and co-curricular offerings, regardless of their age.
Enrolment in Year 9 is available to around 80 students per year and demand for places is high. If you would like to consider Rangi Ruru for your daughter at Year 9, we strongly encourage you to enrol or contact our Enrolments Team prior to your daughter starting their Year 7 year.
