Welcome to Sir Douglas Bader Intermediate School.

Sir Douglas Bader Intermediate has provided Mangere with an educational pathway into college since 1982, and 36 years on, we are proud to proclaim that this is still very much a key focus within the school. Catering for the emerging adolescent requires teaching professionals that not have a deep pedagogical understanding of curriculum and assessment, but more importantly the empathy of understanding the difficulties that students confront through identity and social belonging within this age group. It is extremely exciting that we able to provide the staff that are able to implement effective, modern, creative and challenging curriculum opportunities that aims to nurture and support students throughout their time here at Sir Douglas Bader.

As a staff, we are truly committed to serving our local community, families and students to ensure that they all are able to then engage with ourselves through their local school, and more importantly, reach their potential. If you have any questions, please free to contact ourselves directly. We look forward to meeting you.
