Private Schools

Christchurch Private Schools’ Cluster

The private schools involved in the Christchurch cluster represent some of the finest schools in the country and, arguably the Southern Hemisphere. All of the schools are proud members of the Independent Schools of New Zealand (ISNZ). The cluster represents private primary, intermediate and secondary schools working collaboratively to increase their international student numbers. All of the schools in the cluster have boarding facilities.

The Cluster is made up of the following schools:

  • Cathedral Grammar School (co-ed from Year 1-8)
  • Christ’s College (boys only, from Year 9-13)
  • Medbury School (boys only, from Year 1–8)
  • Rangi Ruru Girls’ School (Year 7–13)
  • Selwyn House Girls’ School (Year 1–8)
  • St Andrew’s College (co-ed from Year 1-13)
  • St Margaret’s College (girls only, from Year 1-13)

Students at all of the schools come from a range of different cultural backgrounds, and this provides ideal environments for international students to be supported and ultimately succeed in. This diversity amongst the students ensures differences are respected and international students have positive interactions that not only develop a young student’s confidence, but also assists in improving their English.
