Our Vision

Hampden Street School is a decile 6 school with approximately 460 students. Our school motto “Piki ake ki ngā whetū – Reach for the Stars” is at the heart of all that we do here at Hampden Street school. This is reflected in our STARS. 


Our mission statement “Each child will strive to reach his/her potential and to understand the value of life-long learning. This mission statement is reflected in our teaching pedagogy and throughout our charter and supporting policies. Links to our charter and policies and procedures are available by visiting our Board of Trustees Information further down this page.

Here at Hampden Street we pride ourselves on our whanautanga, which is relationships with students, whānau and the wider community. This ensures that we offer a rich and diverse programme that best represents our learning community. We actively engage in wānanga (communication) and our classrooms are always open to you. There are many opportunities for whānau to become a part of our programme, be it in celebrating our success, parent forums, excursions or sports days. We love to see you here.
