Growing Together

Learning Forever

Kōkopu School - Since 1884
Ki Te Ako me te Mahi - To Learn and Serve

Kōkopu School is a dynamic school just 15 minutes west of Whangarei catering for students in Years 1 to 8. Our school has a strong community spirit and a friendly rural family atmosphere. We offer a wide range of exciting and inspiring learning experiences while developing tuakana teina relationships across the school. 

Our vision, "Growing Together, Learning Forever," and values are central to the teaching philosophy and organisation of Kōkopu School. We provide a creative, safe and exciting school environment. With small class sizes and high expectations of achievement, positive behaviour and working together.

We have a strong tradition of academic, artistic and sporting success. Our students are encouraged to be ‘country kids’ through practical activities where they are challenged as risk-takers in a supportive and safe environment.

Our Tuakana Teina focus (older students working with younger students) develops children that are caring, empathetic and respectful of others.   
Please feel welcome to visit our school to meet us or just to have a look around.
