Area School Organisation
Mercury Bay Area School is an Area or Composite school consisting of three distinct learning groups all on one site. We cater for students aged five and 19 years of age and for every school year from Year 1 through to Year 13. Each of the three learning groups is led by a Deputy Principal and an Assistant Principal who are responsible for the learning and achievement, welfare, discipline, guidance, attendance and class placement of every student in their section of the school.
