St Paul’s Collegiate School has a reputation for getting the best from its students and for consistently achieving some of New Zealand’s highest academic results.
In a school with 800 students, boys are welcomed from years 9-13 and girls from years 11-13, as day or boarding students. The senior years at St Paul’s offer co-ed learning while the junior school, years 9-10, remains a boys’ only school.
We make no apologies for setting high expectations. We want each and every one of our students to achieve personal bests in all areas of their school life. More than often, these expectations are set much higher than other secondary schools – and our students deliver.
While our strongest focus is ensuring our students are achieving their potential in their academic studies, so too is our focus on developing good character in every young man and woman. Through our Tihoi Venture School programme, our Hauora wellbeing programme which includes emotional intelligence training, our regular Chapel services and our community service programme, we are striving to prepare St Paul’s students to be resilient, agile and contributing members of our society.
We are expert educators. Through teachers who are enthusiastic and passionate about teaching, a pastoral care system that recognises the highs, lows, strengths and weaknesses of each student; and peer support that forms a sense of belonging only a small education environment can provide, we believe young men and women thrive at St Paul’s.
