Rangi Ruru is a place where girls can be girls; where they learn, have fun, be themselves. We know girls better than most. We understand girls at every level, as our wellbeing and personalised learning programmes show.
We support our girls in a holistic way; working with the whole girl, not just the bit that relates to her academic goals, not just her emotional wellbeing or only the part that engagtes in extra-curricular interests. She’s a complex, treasured human being and at Rangi Ruru we totally understand this.
Most families begin the process of considering Rangi Ruru by looking at our fees and the finding out more about the culture of our school. We encourage you to book a tour (please change to book a tour) to view for yourself our gorgeous grounds and campus, to meet some of our friendly staff and to talk with our current students. Another opportunity for you to see the school is during our annual Open Day. Parent’s tell us this is a key element in their decision making process.
Enrolment initiates the next step in the process, an opportunity to personally meet our Principal ask more questions and for us to meet your daughter. We do this to answer any questions you may have, and for you to gain a sense of how we can best support your daughter. It also gives us an opportunity to welcome you to the Rangi Ruru family.Prospectus download

What makes Rangi Ruru stand out is that we put the person at the centre of a ‘personalised’ approach to learning. We do this by knowing and understanding each girl and focussing her learning needs to her individual interests, goals and abilities. We do this across all aspects of her learning, not just the academic focus but through her co-curricular activities as well.Personalised learning
“We work hard to pay the school fees – it is an investment in her future” – 72% of our familes have both parents working.
“Small class sizes means she will get noticed” – no more than 20 in a class in Years 7 & 8, and 24 from Years 9 – 13 – often less than this, especially in the senior years.
“A modern learning environment does not suit our daughter, we like that you have the best of both worlds at Rangi” – we have flexible learning spaces that encourage collaboration, but it is not forced on our students or teachers.
“Our daughter’s difference is respected, she doesn’t have to be the same as everyone else.” – through the learning centre, GATE, personalized learning, and personal development plans we acknowledge every girls individuality. We work to her strengths and through her challenges.
This service is to help students in the new housing areas to the west of the city get the best education they possibly can.
