Welcome to Northcote College
Northcote College has a proud tradition. It is the secondary school on the North Shore with the longest history. The School was founded in 1877. 2016 is the 140th year in the history of Northcote College.
People and positive relationships are at the heart of Northcote College. We recognise that each student is important and unique. We work hard to create an environment where students are happy, thrive academically, enjoy the co-curricular opportunities available and share positive values.
