School Fees

Samuel Marsden Collegiate School is a charitable trust, and our Board sets fees at the lowest possible level to cover costs without eroding the high standards of tuition and facilities for which Marsden has become known. The Board reserves the right to vary fees at its discretion.

All fees are stated in New Zealand dollars and are inclusive of Goods and Services Tax of 15%.
