MANUKURA is a designated special character school.  MANUKURA is based at Massey University (Kura Awa buildings) catering to students from Years 9-13.

MANUKURA provides a varied curriculum that focuses on academic, sporting, and cultural pursuits for the students using a combination of high quality teachers, coaches, and mentors.  The language of tuition is English.

MANUKURA's special character designation is high performance sport and academics therefore MANUKURA provide a full 'wrap around' service, including nutrition, exercise prescription and coaching inclusive of individualised academic plans.

Curriculum delivery is face to face by MANUKURA personnel in all subject areas.  Class sizes are small to ensure high engagement levels and strong connections exist in the learning environment.  Subjects offered are: Biology, Chemistry, English, Health & Physical Education, Mathematics, Physics, Visual Art, Te Reo Maori and Te Reo Rangatira.  STAR and USKILLS programmes are offered in conjunction with UCOL (Universal College of Learning) for career advancement within the Senior school. 

Specialist subject areas for senior students are accessed through Te Kura o Pounamu (The Correspondence School).  Level 1, 2 and 3 subjects offered are Accounting, Classical Studies, Economics, Geography, History and Legal Studies.  These are coordinated by MANUKURA with Te Kura o Pounamu tutors and MANUKURA students.

Numeracy and Literacy remain critical educational focus areas and MANUKURA is committed to ensuring our students are competent and confident in their academic programmes.  Therefore our small class sizes and specialist instruction in these areas ensures our students achieve.

The balance of self directed and face to face learning with the support of passionate curriculum leaders, supervisors and tutors is now a proven formula for academic excellence. MANUKURA has evolved a system over the past decade that has achieved outstanding academic results.  Each student is nurtured in their academic learning programme to ensure successful outcomes are achieved.  A culture of excellence is an expected way of operating at MANUKURA.

All students have individualised plans that reflect their broad career aspirations and needs. Individual plans assist in maintaining a positive blend between students' academic and sporting career pathways. Students individual plans are reviewed regularly to ensure they are "living documents" focused on each students' short, medium and long term outcomes.

Whanau engagement and involvement is critical in the MANUKURA model, the student and their whanau link to ensure holistic development is achieved with the student centered in the decision making process.
