The College is located on a large and attractive campus in the suburb of Pakuranga, 16 kilometres from the centre of Auckland, New Zealand.

Our students enjoy a park-like setting bordering the waters of the Tamaki Estuary, with extensive playing fields and outstanding, well-resourced learning facilities.

Our boarders enjoy some of the best boarding house ‘real estate’ in Auckland with superb views of the estuary and easy access to many of the College’s superb facilities.

Established in 1953, the College remains true to its traditional Christian faith, values and Scottish heritage.

Our innovative ‘parallel education’ philosophy offers the best of both worlds to students during their College years. Boys and girls are taught separately in the Middle School (Years 7-10), while Senior School (Years 11-13) students work in a co-educational setting.

Saint Kentigern offers Senior School students a choice of academic pathways. As an IB World School, our students in Years 12 and 13 can elect to either study towards an International Baccalaureate Diploma or the New Zealand qualification, NCEA (National Certificate of Educational Achievement).


With a well-deserved reputation for excellence in our academic, sporting, cultural and service programmes, we are proud to be recognised as one of the leading co-educational, independent secondary schools in New Zealand.

Saint Kentigern Middle and Senior Schools open ‘a world of opportunity’ for the young people who take their educational journey with us to their Future Me.
