With over 100 years of experience in educating young women, St Cuthbert's is New Zealand's top academic school. With a dedicated Junior School (Years 1-6), Middle School (Years 7-8) and Senior School (Years 9-13), St Cuthbert's places an emphasis on embracing its founding heritage and traditions while ensuring that we impart skills that young women need for both tomorrow and into the future.

While our academic results are unrivalled, in choosing a school for your daughter it is important to also explore how we achieve these results while at the same time, growing every dimension of every girl.

Every girl is an individual, and we ensure that every girl has the support she needs to discover her unique talents, inside and outside the classroom. By identifying your daughter's strengths, she will be able to find her place, both in the St Cuthbert's community and in the wider world.

A reputation for excellence

At St Cuthbert's, excellence isn't just a grade - it's encouraging every girl to achieve her personal best. We recognise that every girl is a leader in some aspect of the school community. Whether she excels on the sports field or on the stage, in the classroom or in another unique way, we will ensure that your daughter is able to explore her strengths and talents in a supportive and inclusive environment.

St Cuthbert's students obtain exceptional academic results. With both National Certificates of Educational Achievement and International Baccalaureate (IB) qualifications on offer, no matter where your daughter’s academic aspirations lie, our approach to teaching means that our students gain the tools to become adaptable, forward-thinking, life-long learners. With these essential life skills, our students go on to pursue a wide range of tertiary studies and careers, both domestically and overseas.

In 2017, over 50% of Year 13 St Cuthbert's IB students achieved a score of 40 or above. Three St Cuthbert's students received perfect scores of 45, making us the top performing school for IB in New Zealand. We have small IB classes enabling our teachers to establish good relationships with their students and tailor courses and options to them.

A Knowledge Rich School

As an independent school we have the freedom, resources, and teaching capacity that enables us to operate as a Knowledge Rich School. This approach is a key strategic focus at St Cuthbert's and is based on a strong conceptual framework and teaching staff with in-depth and specialist subject knowledge.

Our Knowledge Rich approach introduces our students to a way of learning that will stay with them for life. With a St Cuthbert's education, your daughter will acquire the digital, entrepreneurial, creative and analytical skills that are needed to future-proof her chosen career path.

Global Citizenship

St Cuthbert's is focused on growing our girls to be caring leaders and influencers who are true global citizens. As part of our responsibility to prepare girls for their future, an innovative and robust Global Citizenship framework is engrained across every aspect of school life.
