Our purpose is highest quality education in a safe and stimulating environment.

Inspiring students to learn, grow and achieve in an environment that encourages individual and community responsibility, freedom of expression and respect for the rights of others.


  • Working Together
    Students, parents, the school and the community work together to achieve an inclusive school that is socially and culturally diverse, safe and free from disruption and which recognises the unique status of Maori.
  • Realising Potential
    We value and celebrate effort, success, innovation and creativity. We believe high expectations promote student achievement and encourage social responsibility.
  • Mutual Respect and Self Management
    Onslow is characterised by a mature interaction between staff and students. Teachers and students are treated with respect and students share responsibility for learning with their teachers.
  • Life Long Learning
    Students are engaged and developed as lifelong learners. They are taught how to learn by high quality and motivated staff who continue to learn themselves.
