Social Studies Teacher

Epsom · Auckland

Diocesan is one of the top schools for girls in New Zealand against any comparison for academic results, sports, the arts and commitment to educating young women to make life long and effective contributions to the society in which they live. Parents are attracted to the sense of history and tradition of a school that began at the turn of the 20th century, dedicated to offering the “very best Scholarship” at a time when education for girls was a low priority. This edgy proposition in 1903 has been further extended by the succeeding Boards in terms of the facilities and the opportunities offered. Parents are also attracted by the commitment to educating the whole girl, encouraging her to be “more than she ever imagined” in whatever field of endeavour that may be.

Diocesan is set in Epsom, Auckland.  Diocesan’s purpose-built campus is designed to accommodate buildings, sports facilities and recreational areas on a relatively compact site while achieving a sense of space with landscaped gardens, courtyards and covered walkways.
