Established in 1969, Glenfield College is a state, co-educational secondary (Years 9-13) school on Auckland’s North Shore. It is an ideally sized secondary school with about 500 students, which is large enough to offer a broad range of academic courses and outside classroom activities, and yet small enough to have a personal touch. We treat our students as individuals, and we tailor their study programmes to their academic needs, ability levels, and interests.
The school has a proud record of academic achievement above the average of similar schools. Over the years, it has nurtured many students who have excelled in external examinations. Classrooms focus on student inquiry and learning within a supportive environment.
Glenfield College has a reputation for the Performing Arts and has a theatre of professional standards. Sporting achievements are also a feature of the school, with a strong emphasis on participation. The school has large playing fields, a hockey turf and tennis/netball courts. These are all surrounded by mature trees and bush.
The school has a full range of resources you would expect from a modern secondary school in New Zealand. There is an excellent library with plenty of computers and Internet access. There are specialist rooms such as science and computer laboratories and a dedicated robotics suite. We also have catering rooms and an automotive engineering workshop. Classrooms are bright and well-maintained, and we make every endeavour to accommodate a student’s request for study options.
International students are a valued part of life at the school. Glenfield College works hard to ensure each international student has a happy, fruitful and memorable time at the school.
