At Cathedral Grammar School we prepare students for the opportunities and challenges of the future, while maintaining our strong spiritual, cultural and academic traditions. Underpinned by the New Zealand Curriculum, we share a nationwide vision to grow ‘confident, connected, actively involved, lifelong learners’.

At the centre of our educational philosophy is the goal of nurturing ‘the whole child’. We provide opportunities for our students to flourish intellectually, creatively, emotionally, socially, physically, culturally and spiritually, with a clear focus on well-being and positive education.

Students achieve their academic potential through a strong emphasis on the essential skills of Literacy and Numeracy, which we believe are the foundation for successful academic achievement. With this fundamental focus in mind, we provide a challenging, innovative and balanced curriculum that is personalised, and is both content and concept-driven across subject and discipline areas. 

We are committed to nurturing, knowing and growing our learners to be Engaged Thinkers, Enterprising Spirits and Moral Citizens. We provide the very best care for every child, every day; building relationships that are positive and make a lasting difference.
