A private school catering for up to 800 students could take shape on the outskirts of Whangarei as early as next year.

The Selcowyn Trust has applied for a resource consent to build Huanui College on one of the five lots beside Ngunguru Rd, Glenbervie.

The school will initially cater for up to 200 junior grade students and later extend to Year 13 with a roll of 800 spread over 29 classrooms.

It will have a pool, gymnasium and a rugby, cricket, hockey and soccer pitch, an athletics track and tennis and netball courts.

Selcowyn Trust director Evan Hamlet said Huanui College would be an affordable alternative to Auckland private schools.

The only other private school in Northland is Springbank College in Kerikeri.
