The school site is both impressive and extensive. Recent property developments include the construction and complete refurbishment of 22 classrooms, the hall, catering suite, and sports pavilion.


The school grounds accommodate 4 rugby and 3 football pitches in winter and 8 grass cricket wickets in summer. There is also an artificial turf area that provides 6 tennis courts in summer and ¾ size hockey turf in the winter. Music, drama, and cultural facilities (including a dedicated Māori Studies Learning Centre) complement the classroom space.


An adjacent farm with a pine plantation and New Zealand’s first school vineyard, an outdoor education camp at Puketitiri (Camp Simmons), and the location of the Hawke’s Bay Holt Planetarium at the school complete the educational facilities.


The school community is proud of the facilities and visitors often comment positively about the quality of the buildings and grounds.
