We are proud of the quality education and the many opportunities that we provide for our students and we know that this prepares them well for life beyond school. We pride ourselves on our dedicated staff, excellent facilities, friendly students, and engaging programmes set amongst the stunning landscapes of Central Otago.
To quote our most recent ERO report October 2014 Students describe their teachers as accessible and approachable and that they “go the extra mile” to help with aspects of their learning. Students learn in a friendly, supportive culture with strong pastoral-care networks"
Cromwell College is a secondary school with a difference. Since 1995 over 300 students have enjoyed our highly regarded and popular Outdoor Pursuits Academy. This academy enables students from around New Zealand and overseas to experience life in Central Otago for their final years of secondary schooling.
Our school motto is Whaia te taumata, "pursue the highest peaks" - Deserve Success. We believe that we deserve and earn our success through a culture of mutual respect, high expectations and the pursuit of personal excellence. A culture of respect creates an environment where we can all learn and succeed.
Consider coming to join us, as many students from around New Zealand and the world have done before you, it would be great to see you.
