Welcome to Matamata College

located in Waikato, New Zealand

I am very proud to be Principal of Matamata College – a school that has over 90 years of tradition; experienced, excellent teachers, a good academic record, well resourced classrooms and a beautiful environment in which to learn.

We provide learning programmes and opportunities for every student to reach their potential and grow into responsible, positive, contributing citizens who are confident, connected, actively involved lifelong learners ready to take on the 21st Century.

Our school whakatauki is “Ma mahi, ka ora” which means “by work we prosper”. Simply, this means that the more work that you put in and the more you get involved in everything that Matamata College offers, the more you will enjoy school and the more success you will have.

I look forward to welcoming you to Matamata College.


Due to the Covid-19 pandemic our International Programme for 2021 is currently on hold until further notice.
