We understand that choosing the right school for your child is one of the most important decisions you have to make.

At Cathedral Grammar, the student is at the centre of all that we do. We recognise our students’ uniqueness and provide an environment where they are offered the opportunities and support which will allow them to realise their own individual potential and dreams.

We believe the success of a school cannot be measured by results alone. The success of a school is only truly reflected in the quality of the graduates who enter the world, what they bring with them and how they contribute. It is our goal to graduate students who are highly valued members of our society. 

It is our aim to make the enrolment and application process as seamless and personalised as possible, and we are here to assist you at every stage of this exciting journey. If you have any questions or concerns, please contact our Registrar, Nicky Oram at oramn@cathedralgrammar.school.nz or +64 3 365 0385.
