Wairau Intermediate School is a variable space state intermediate school dedicated to meeting the academic, emotional, physical and social needs of emerging adolescents.

Located on the North Shore ten minutes from downtown Auckland City, the school offers a wide range of programmes to a school population which reflects the unique diversity that is New Zealand society.

Its logo is derived from a Maori water pattern representing the meaning of Wairau, “an abundance of water”. In the sense that water is essential for growth, Wairau Intermediate aims to provide learning opportunities essential for adolescent development.

Our well qualified and professional staff are very successful in challenging students to achieve academic success in both national and international assessments. They also ensure that the social and emotional needs of children this age are met.

Wairau Intermediate encourages student participation in a huge variety of extra curricular activities, again challenging them to reach their full potential in all areas.
