Students come from far and wide to attend Marsden

Students of all ages travel from all parts of the Greater Wellington region to attend Marsden and we also have a number of girls from overseas who stay with local families. Admission is non-selective, and while our academic results lead the country year after year, this is not the only way we measure achievement. Our vibrant school culture promotes widespread participation at every year level in a range of activities. Happiness, health and a positive attitude are key for every student's well-being.

Karori Campus

Set in 4.3 hectares of lush grounds our Karori campus is home to:

Each school has its own facilities, and its own learning management system called MyMarsden: this is the day to day site for students, parents and Old Girls.

Marsden Whitby is rare in New Zealand education - a young and rapidly growing independent co-educational school for boys and girls from Year 7 to 13.

Marsden Whitby joined the Marsden family in 2005 and has grown quickly, sharing much of Karori school's heritage, but forging a strong and vibrant identity of its own.

Small Classes

Professional and highly qualified staff at both campuses are committed to maintaining the philosophy and standards of the school. Classes frequently have fewer than 20 students, enabling teachers to nurture and monitor the progress of every student.
