Academic Results

The St Margaret’s community is proud of the 2019 examination results for both NCEA and the International Baccalaureate Diploma. Those with excellence endorsed NCEA and Distinction in IB are to be congratulated and celebrated. Equally the high percentage of girls of all abilities should celebrate achieving their personal academic goals through hard work and perseverance and huge support from teachers and parents.

We are committed as educators to empower every girl to achieve her academic goals. Our commitment to working towards a current and relevant graduate profile gives each girl the best start possible in her journey beyond school where she faces an exponentially changing world of work in a global society. We educate young women to live and lead.
