School Environment and Culture

Auckland Grammar School is one of New Zealand's leading secondary schools, with a reputation for all-round excellence in academic, sporting and cultural pursuits and a strong sense of tradition, pride and confidence.

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.

We make sure that our 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.
