Aorere College is a co-educational state secondary school (years 9-13) that was established in 1964 in Papatoetoe, Manukau, Auckland, New Zealand. The Principal is Greg Pierce. As of October 2014, there were approximately 1494 students enrolled.[1]


Due to the rapid increase in student population over the past couple of years the school has had to construct new buildings to accommodate all the students attending Aorere.

On-going renovations and upkeep to school buildings and infrastructure underpin the aim to provide a safe and state-of-the-art learning environment for students.
