Our college was built in 1986 when the Wanaka Area School was outgrown. Currently we are undergoing a major redevelopment of the campus to update current buildings and cater for our growing roll.
The college is experiencing a positive growth at present. In 2020 we started the year with over 1100 students. Each year we also have 30 hostellers who join us for Year 13 from around New Zealand.See more on the Hostel
Work is beginning on the initial stages as soon as the school closes for the Christmas break. The overall plan which consist of five stages, will encompass many new learning area expansions. Our 1000 students current capacity will be significantly increased to house 1600 student.
