Entering at Year 7 or Year 9, our new students quickly settle into ‘The Saint Kentigern Way,’ a philosophy founded on timeless Christian values which, together with a traditional emphasis on personal responsibility and high expectations, lays the foundation for a first class education.

In recognition that boys and girls learn differently in their early teens and often achieve better outcomes in single-gender classrooms, Saint Kentigern College operates a very successful ‘parallel education model’. 

In the Middle School (Years 7-10), our boys and girls are taught separately for all core curriculum subjects.

This model allows our younger students to learn in an environment best suited to their different development needs during their crucial, early teenage years.

Our students in Year 7 are taught in a homeroom environment with a dedicated classroom teacher. The students also benefit from the expertise of specialist teachers for other key elements of the curriculum such as Arts and Technology.

All Middle College students follow a core curriculum founded on the New Zealand Curriculum and enhanced by the Christian Education programme that is an integral part of life at Saint Kentigern College. 

For all students, there is a focus on individualised, student-centred learning enhanced with innovative use of digital technologies in the classroom. Saint Kentigern is a wireless campus and all students are required to purchase a personal laptop within specifications.
