Aorere College is a co-educational state secondary school (years 9–13) that was established in 1964 in Papatoetoe, Manukau, Auckland, New Zealand. The current principal of the college is Greg Pierce. As of July 2016, there are approximately 1566 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.
