Mission Statement

The Mission of Pompallier Catholic College is Learning Excellence for Life


The College seeks to develop the moral, religious, and academic potential of pupils by firmly centering their lives on God and the Gospel values of Love, Compassion, Forgiveness, Peace, Justice and Hope.

This is achieved by providing students with the highest standards of teaching and example. Expectations are clear, firm and fair. Students are actively encouraged to become fully involved in the life of the College, aim for excellence in all that they do, care for one another and live their faith.


Pompallier College is named after Bishop Jean Baptiste Pompallier who led the first group of Catholic Missionaries to New Zealand, arriving in the Hokianga with Fr Servant and Br Michel a Marist Priest and Brother in 1838. He was the first Catholic Bishop of New Zealand.

The College was founded in 1971 after fund-raising among Northland parishes. It started as a private Boys' Boarding School owned and administered by the Society of Mary. Responding to local needs and changing circumstances, the College became co-educational in 1977, closed the boarding facility in 1981 and in the same year became a State-integrated Secondary school owned by the Diocese of Auckland and administered by a Board of Trustees. An Attached Intermediate was opened in 1995 and Form 1-7 status was achieved in 1997. It is now known as a Year 7-13 State integrated co-educational Secondary School.
