Nau Mai, Haere Mai, welcome to James Hargest College
JHC is a high performing college where students thrive due to high expectations, multiple opportunities and a culture of success.
Our curriculum is extensive and led by enthusiastic, supportive and highly skilled teachers. Each individual is supported to reach their full potential to enable them to transition into the best universities and employment locally and internationally.
We encourage our students to take part in our outstanding range of extra-curricular activities. Sport, Music, Performing Arts and Cultural Activities play an integral part in our broader educational success and engagement.
Inspiration is gained from our namesake Brigadier James Hargest, a local and national war hero who made the ultimate sacrifice for our country. Like him, we have a strong set of values, ‘The Hargest Way’ that we all aspire to.
Our mission is clear; to equip all our students to create the best possible future for themselves and their world.
