School Profile

Modern and progressive, whilst also being steeped in history and tradition, King’s College is a world-class independent secondary school, educating day and boarding students - boys from Year 9 to Year 13 and girls in Year 12 and 13. Our reputation has been built on a strong tradition of academic and all-round achievement. We pursue excellence in everything we do towards the development of balanced, mature young adults, well-equipped to lead New Zealand into the future.

Founded by Mr Graham Bruce in 1896, the King’s vision is to provide ‘the best all-round education it is possible to obtain’. Throughout the years, this aim has evolved to embody the education of the whole person ­ academically, culturally, physically, socially and spiritually. 

As one of the largest boarding schools in New Zealand, catering for students from all over New Zealand and internationally, King’s College offers a range of options, which blend only the best traditions from our past, with practices that reflect modern principles of residential care.

King's College is a progressive, cosmopolitan learning institution, equipped with first-class facilities and modern computer technology. We have recruited high-quality, dedicated and talented teaching staff and our role is to ensure that every student who leaves us is prepared for the future, understands good citizenship and the importance of community service. Learning should be both challenging and enjoyable and, at King's, we strive to maintain that balance in everything we do.
