Tradition, innovation and excellence

St Margaret’s College is an independent day and boarding school for Year 1- 13 girls and comprises Junior, Middle and Senior Schools, as well as a Pre School. St Margaret’s was founded on Anglican Christian values and has a proud history of academic, sporting and cultural success. Students are offered a world class learning and leadership experience.  

St Margaret’s is the only school in Christchurch to offer the International Baccalaureate Diploma Programme (Years 12-13). Our girls are offered an opportunity to complete an internationally recognised and highly regarded qualification with a philosophy that fits closely with the holistic philosophy and vision of the school. As our girls leave the school gates at the end of their time at St Margaret’s they will be fully equipped to be global citizens and the providers for and of the next generation of New Zealanders.

Kia ora, greetings and thank you for visiting our website at St Margaret’s College.

Please come and visit us and experience the unique character of our special community and the strong school spirit for which we are renowned. We are proud of our school and our girls and value our school family of past and present students and parents. At St Margaret’s we place a strong emphasis on a holistic education. We work in partnership with our parents and families to offer our girls the very best academic and career opportunities but also to ensure their physical, emotional and spiritual development in a caring Christian environment.

Executive Principal
