What makes St Margaret's College unique?

Please come and visit us and feel the St Margaret’s “Difference”. We are proud of our school and our girls and we value our school family of past and present students and parents. At St Margaret’s we place a strong emphasis on a holistic education. We work in partnership with our parents and families to offer our girls the very best academic and career opportunities but also to ensure their physical, emotional and spiritual development in a caring Christian environment. The school strongly believes that it is preparing young people for their futures and through student involvement and sporting and cultural activities young women develop life skills that they may not develop in the classroom. Girls have numerous opportunities for involvement, high level performance and leadership through sporting and cultural activities within the school, regionally and nationally.

St Margaret’s is the only school in Canterbury and the only girls’ school in the South Island currently offering the International Baccalaureate Diploma programme. As well we offer the National Certificate of Educational Achievement. In offering the International Baccalaureate we are not in any way undermining NCEA but rather we are concerned to give our students choices and to offer the opportunity to follow a philosophy of education and an internationally recognized qualification which reflects exactly what St Margaret’s is all about.
