I warmly welcome you to St Matthew’s Collegiate School.
St Matthew’s enjoys a reputation as one of the finest girls’ schools in New Zealand. Girls come to the school from throughout New Zealand and overseas and are encouraged to achieve in all areas by well-qualified, committed staff.
We believe that the primary focus of a secondary school must be academic achievement and, as the world beyond school becomes more competitive, good qualifications are becoming more important.
Other factors contribute to our success. We are a boarding school in a rural setting. Within the boarding community girls are able to grow up in a disciplined structured environment and learn the skills of independence and co-operation.
Because we are a boarding school, education extends well beyond the normal day. Outside these hours girls are required to participate fully in sporting and cultural activities.
A St Matthew’s education offers the chance for young women to make lifelong friends and build up a network of others with common educational achievements.
If a student embraces all of the opportunities St Matthew’s offers, the result will be an employable, well-balanced, confident individual who achieves to her potential and contributes positively to her community.
I invite you to explore St Matthew’s through our website or a visit to the school. Please contact us with any questions. We look forward to meeting you.
