Auckland Grammar School

Auckland Grammar School
School Introduction

Auckland Grammar School was originally endowed by the Governor of New Zealand, Sir George Grey, in 1850.

Providing an education for young men from Form 3 to Form 7, the School offers an academic programme based on both national and international syllabi, catering for a range of students from diverse backgrounds, socio-economic groups and ethnicities.

The student cohort at Auckland Grammar includes young men from a wide range of backgrounds, including European, Maori, Chinese, Korean, Indian, Sri Lankan, Japanese, Taiwanese, African, Tongan, Samoan, Cook Island, Fijian, Niuean, Cambodian, Middle Eastern and Vietnamese.

The school makes sure that the policies and plans are implemented in ways that are sensitive to the cultural backgrounds, values and needs of both the individual students and their families.

The School also recognises the mutual rights and obligations provided for by the Treaty of Waitangi, and in so doing ensures the curriculum reflects both Maori perspectives and values.

School Curriculum

As New Zealand's leading academic secondary school for boys, Auckland Grammar School offers a dual qualification pathway: both the New Zealand National Certificate of Education Achievement (NCEA) and the University of Cambridge International Exams (CIE).

Junior School: Students in Forms 3 and 4 study a major core of subjects consisting of English, Mathematics, Social Studies, Science, Languages and a minor core of Physical Education, Music, Art and Technology. No major core subject will consist of a course of less than one year's duration.

Senior School: Form 5 marks the start of a three-year programme that will lead to University Entrance and/or further study in the tertiary sector with the introduction of Pre-Q, which will replace the IGCSE pathway from 2019.
