Welcome to Linwood College

Where everything we do is designed to develop learning, mauri ora, well-being, and a growth mindset. Our learners know who they are and seek out who they can be.

E ngā mana, e ngā reo, e ngā hau e whā, nau mai, haere mai.
Kia ora koutou. Talofa. Kia Orana. Malo e lelei. Bula. Fakaalofa atu. Namaste. Kumusta.

Our Community

Linwood College is a community school: we are in the community and of the community.


A place where every learner is known and valued as themselves.


Pathways for personalised success.

Warm greetings to the Linwood community


Linwood College is a place where every learner is known and valued as an individual and where whānau-school relationships matter. Since its opening in 1954, our school has had significant community support and, reflecting this, we have a distinctive identity, based on strong family and community relationships. Individuals learn best when who they are – language, culture, identity – is affirmed. Enhancing the mana and dignity of the individual is at the heart of Linwood College.
