We are proud that the academic results St Margaret’s College students achieve are among the best in New Zealand, while our co-curricular programmes offer our girls opportunities to perform to an elite level. We offer a truly balanced education in a warm-family-like setting, based on Hauora, the holistic view of health and wellbeing in Te Ao Māori.
Our qualified pre-school teachers work in partnership with whānau to provide a caring and nurturing environment for girls and boys, enabling them to thrive as they embark on their school journey.
Supported by our teachers, our girls learn to take risks, develop resilience and collaborate with others, all in small, single-cell classrooms that provide a sense of community and a life-long love of learning.
Recognised by the Adolescent Success Middle Years Schools of Excellence Programme, we offer a holistic programme of learning that is inclusive, stimulating and innovative, in a nurturing environment.
As the only girls’ school in the South Island to offer the dual academic pathway of NCEA and International Baccalaureate, our exceptional academic results provide our students with limitless opportunities.
Our students achieve amongst the highest academic results in New Zealand and internationally, for both NCEA and International Baccalaureate. We are committed to giving each girl the best possible start in her journey beyond school, in an exponentially changing world of work in a global society.
