Welcome to Windy Ridge School.

It is my honour and privilege as Principal to welcome you to our great school. Here we share a passion for supporting students to discover a love for learning through our learning through play/experiential learning approach, effective reading, writing, mathematics and inquiry programmes, and an exciting range of extra-curricular activities.

Windy Ridge School is a decile 7 school in Glenfield on the North Shore, Auckland. We have a roll of around 250-300 students. We value strong home-school partnerships and celebrate close relationships with our parents, whānau and multi-cultural community.

Through our Student Learner Profile, we support our students to be active learners who are confident, engaged, passionate and reflective goal setters. Our goal is for our students to leave us with mana, and to be proud of who they are; able to be collaborative, creative and critical, digitally fluent and engaged citizens.

At Windy Ridge our values of Atawhai – Kindness, Manaakitanga – Respect, Honore – Integrity and Manawaroa – Resilience shape how we learn and grow.

Our school is blessed with an amazing team of teachers, learning assistants, leaders and administrative staff who pride themselves on knowing every student in our school.
