Takapuna Normal Intermediate School

Our Vision: To develop compassionate, globally-connected learners who strive for excellence through action.

Takapuna Normal Intermediate School, located on Auckland's North Shore, caters for Years 7 and 8 (ages 11-13).


We deliver the Primary Years Programme in partnership with the New Zealand Curriculum. We are a learner-centred environment, with an emphasis on fostering a community that is safe, collaborative and supportive. We are very proud of the quality teaching and learning that we offer at our school with many opportunities for our learners to learn, achieve and succeed academically, socially, culturally and in their sporting endeavours. Takapuna Normal Intermediate provides opportunities for our adolescent learners to experience personal growth and develop the skills and attributes they will need as communicators, creators and contributors in the 21st century. Our committed and talented staff ensure that we offer a curriculum that is personalised, innovative, internationally minded and future-focused. All learners have access to devices. We have a number of additional intervention programs to support those who require additional support including literacy and numeracy programs and an EAL (English as Additional Language) program. Learners also engage with a Specialist program which includes Visual and Performing Arts, Science, Digital Technology, Food Technology and Hard Materials.
