Established in 1969, Glenfield College is a state co-educational secondary school (Years 9-13) on the North Shore of Auckland. It is a medium-sized school with a roll of around 500 students, large enough to offer a range of academic courses and outside the classroom activities, yet small enough to have a personal touch. We treat our students as individuals, and their study programmes are tailored to their academic needs, ability levels and interests.
Glenfield College has a proud record of academic achievement, above the average for similar schools. Over the years, we have nurtured many students who have excelled in external examinations. Classrooms focus on student inquiry and learning in a supportive environment.
Glenfield College has an outstanding reputation in all areas of the Arts (Drama, Dance, and Music), and has a fully equipped performance theatre. Sporting achievements are also a feature of the school with a strong emphasis on both participation and excellence for students’ fitness and health. The school has spacious playing fields, multi-purpose AstroTurf for hockey, netball and other sports, plus a gymnasium with two spaces and a weights room.
The school has the full range of resources you would expect from a modern secondary school in New Zealand. There is an excellent library, computer rooms with internet access and wi-fi. Our specialist rooms include the recently upgraded science laboratories, catering rooms and an automotive engineering workshop. Classrooms are bright and well-maintained, and every endeavour is made to accommodate a student’s request for study options.
