Sacred Heart College

Boys Years 7-13   |   Visit website

St Joseph’s has a strong tradition with Sacred Heart; each year sees 75% of graduating boys off to Glendowie to study with the Marist Brothers. As you will see below, St Joseph’s pupils receive a priority in enrolment.

The College currently receives more applications than there are places available. Consistent with the Special Character of the College, preference is given to families with an established connection with the Catholic Church. Preference of enrolment is established by the designated agent of the proprietor in accordance with the revised guidelines approved by the Catholic Bishops of New Zealand in 2003.

St Peter’s College

Boys Years 7-13   |   Visit website

St Peter’s College has an approved maximum roll as specified in its integration agreement of approximately 850 secondary and 350 intermediate students.

The students who attend the College come from many parts of Auckland so there is a very wide range of families in the college community and consequently mixed socio-economic and occupational groupings and a diverse range of cultural backgrounds including Samoan, Tongan, Maori, Asian and many others.

The College is centrally situated in Mountain Road, Epsom and was established in 1939. Although most of the staff are now lay men and women it was conducted and staffed originally by the religious order of men known as the Christian Brothers who have strongly influenced the College throughout its history and have maintained a teaching presence.
