Academic Opportunities

Our girls tell us that one of the aspects they love most about St Cuthbert’s is the thrill of trying new things and discovering hidden talents.

St Cuthbert’s students have a reputation for obtaining exceptional academic results.

With both NCEA and International Baccalaureate (IB) qualifications on offer, no matter your daughter’s academic aspirations and interests, our approach to teaching means that our students gain the tools to become adaptable, forward-thinking, life-long learners.

With these essential life skills, our students go on to pursue a wide range of tertiary studies and careers, both nationally and overseas.

Finding every girl’s potential

Our goal is to help every girl understand how she best learns and equip her with the tools and strategies to unlock this. This could mean anything from specialised tuition through to a fully customised learning programme for diverse learners.

Diversity encompasses everything from giftedness (learning enrichment) to processing disorders, learning differences (specialised learning intervention) and ESOL (English Second Language Learners). Through our leading programme, any girl with diverse learning requirements is identified early and handled with sensitivity.

We recognise girls work in different ways and different paces and offer personalised learning which allow us to adapt a girl’s class schedule to provide targeted support where she most needs it. We are proud to have seen our diverse learners achieve success and just two examples in recent years include a student becoming Head Girl, and another receiving the Top Scholars’ Award in Design.
