Sir Edmund Hillary Collegiate is a school in Otara, Auckland, New Zealand. The school was formed in 2004, when Hillary College, Bairds Intermediate School and Clydemore Primary School joined together. There are three distinct schools on the one campus, which was opened by Sir Edmund Hillary, after whom it is named, in 2004. Hillary College opened in 1966 and was named Otara College until 1969.

The Ministry of Education institution number for the senior school is 588. The numbers for the intermediate and junior schools are 1217 [3] and 1251.[4]

On 29 January 2009, Education Minister Anne Tolley sacked the board of trustees at the collegiate, following an Education Review Office report and claims of teachers physically and verbally abusing students within the Middle and Senior schools.[5] Since then the school elected a new board of trustees.
