Howick College opened in Februrary 1974 with a roll of 216 students and 16 staff. Since then we have grown into a large school with approximately 2,000 students and 250 staff.


The past four decades have seen huge changes in education, with the move to NCEA qualifications and also the way technology is now used to create engaging learning for our students.


Thousands of students have passed through our halls since we began inspiring a community of passionate learners, and we are honoured to have some of their children with us today. Some former students have also joined us as staff members.


In 2014, we celebrated our 40th birthday with a Jubilee reunion with former students and staff. As we head towards our next 'big birthday' we are looking forward to more exciting changes to come.
