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.
