He iti te mokoroa, nāna i kati te kahikatea 

The mokoroa (grub) may be small, but it cuts through the Kahikatea

Welcome to Edgecumbe College!

Edgecumbe College was founded in 1962, and is situated on the heart of the Rangitaiki Plains, in Edgecumbe. Our extensive park-like grounds host generous-sized classrooms and facilities, including full-length solar-heated swimming pool, full-sized and well-equipped gymnasium, curated horticulture block, science laboratories, modern technology spaces catering for wood, metal, food, digital and design subjects. Our school is currently undergoing a Ministry of Education remodel to modernise our classrooms, alongside a Board-led refurbishment of outdoor spaces.

Edgecumbe College’s overarching value and drive is INTEGRITY – to be honest and true to oneself, to act respectfully and responsibly, to have empathy and aroha for those around us, to strive and achieve and have resilience and determination.

At Edgecumbe College, wellbeing is a primary focus on which education success is built. Our students are encouraged to create career paths that align with their passions and strengths, and our staff support our students with individualised learning goals to ensure personal excellence and success.
