Snells Beach School opened in 2009 to provide education for students in Years 1 – 6 in the Mahurangi East area. Located approximately 45 minutes north of Auckland the school is situated above beautiful Snells Beach, overlooking Kawau Bay on one side, and the Mahurangi River on the other.

We are a comparatively small semi-rural school, with an end-of-year roll that sits around 250 students. We are actively involved in our surroundings, and our students enjoy time at Snells Beach, Scandrett Regional Park, and by the Mahurangi River. We celebrate the cultural diversity of our students, and believe in supporting all learners to achieve their best.
