St Paul’s Collegiate School is one of New Zealand’s leading private secondary schools that offers both day and boarding to Year 9-13 boys and Year 11-13 girls. Located in Hamilton, St Paul’s Collegiate has a reputation for providing a personalised education that focuses on both academic excellence and developing well-rounded young men and women.
Our small size of less than 700 students creates a close family environment allowing each student to be known personally by their teachers and peers. This intimate environment allows for small class sizes of less than 20 pupils, in which students have greater teacher assistance in an achievement-focused environment.
Although there is a strong focus on academic achievement, students are expected to be first and foremost good people; then successful students and scholars who strive to embrace our strong academic tradition; and, finally, individuals who learn to work together and cooperate with one another in the classroom and day-to-day environment.
