We endeavour to deliver innovative learning opportunities that inspires, challenges and prepares boys for the future and enables all boys to reach their potential as empowered individuals.


We are committed to providing a holistic education so that our boys experience great learning. 

We provide learning opportunities in which all boys can thrive and are able to deeply engage and connect with their local, national and global communities and are prepared and excited about their future. 

With programmes tailored to the specific learning styles and needs of boys, our mission is to inspire each of our students to strive for excellence in all areas of endeavour.  

We recognise that boys require diverse learning environments where goals are clearly identified, and the purpose of learning is made explicit. 

Highly dedicated teachers and a wide range of resources prepare the way for the very best in teaching and learning at Saint Kentigern Boys’ School.

A strong foundation of literacy and numeracy is at the core of our curriculum.

We recognise the importance of preparing our boys for an ever-changing world; giving them the knowledge to adopt and then adapt skills as new technological challenges unfold.

Every child has the gift of an inquiring mind. To build on this natural curiosity, the school utilises a guided inquiry approach to teaching that develops each student’s ability to become a self-directed learner. Inquiry learning is a life-long learning tool that extends well beyond the classroom. 

For our boys to succeed and thrive, we provide learning experiences that facilitate their development in three primary domains: knowledge, skills, and dispositions.


Deep engagement with disciplinary knowledge builds and develops the boys’ skills in communication, collaboration, creativity, problem solving, metacognition, and critical thinking, and dispositions such as resilience, curiosity, resourcefulness, persistence, and adaptability.

Strong skills and dispositions allow the boys to broaden and deepen their knowledge, driven by their own interests and motivations, as well as by agreed standards for competency in these domains.

Learners who are trained to think and communicate in this way will be well equipped to handle any subsequent learning environments.
