Tohea – to strive for personal excellence

Welcome to Rutherford College

Rutherford College is a community where striving for personal excellence is the focus. Student needs are put at the centre of a personalised learning system in which learning is made meaningful for them. A high expectations culture exists and high standards of academic, sporting, cultural and social achievement are attained.

Education is first and foremost about student needs and creating an environment that provides all students with a very real opportunity to pursue their personal potential. For education to be at its most valuable it must be a holistic experience and allow young people to pursue personal excellence across a range of contexts.
