Welcome to Bucklands Beach Intermediate School



Haere Mai


Bucklands Beach Intermediate school has a unique character, as it caters for students in the  intermediate school years (11-13 years). Even though we have a short time with the students we make the most of every opportunity. We pride ourselves on giving our students the best possible education. Excellence, choice, and being caring are integral to our core philosophy. Our staff are internationally trained and dedicated to promoting life long, reflective learners with a love for learning. Our school is about partnerships with local schools and our parent community.

Historically, BBi was established in 1976 and since then it has grown in size and the demographics have changed. Our motto remains the same ‘Whaia te Tikitiki’ - Reach for the heights - be the best you can be.

Bucklands Beach Intermediate is an International Baccalaureate World School delivering the Primary Years Programme. Our mission is to educate, guide and mentor all students to become successful, internationally minded, lifelong learners.

I am very proud to be the Principal of BBI. Choosing the right school for your child is one of the most important decisions you will make. Please contact us if you would like to find out more about our school.


We aim for this website to be a place where you can find information about our school and where we can communicate with you.
