A Girls' School

Choosing a girls' school...
because at a girls' schools, girls come first

At Tauranga Girls' College

  • All the leadership roles are filled by girls: from the captain of the volleyball team to the head of the student body; from the first trumpet in the symphonic band to the main part in the school play; and from all the council and house leaders to the leaders of every school club

  • Girls see (and are) strong female role models, and understand that they too can achieve successful outcomes from their own efforts

  • All activities are open to girls: they participate,  influence and lead for genuine achievement 

  • In an all-girl classroom, girls take on all the roles, providing an atmosphere where students take the risks necessary

  • Girls thrive and excel in collaborative teams

  • Teachers match their teaching to the way girls learn and develop their courses to suit girls’ needs

  • Girls are free to work through the challenges of adolescence without fear of embarrassment or harassment

  • Girls develop their relationships in a supportive environment

  • There is no obstacle preventing girls from exploring a career in any area

  • Girls’ achievements are celebrated

  • Girl-centred learning leaves no doubt as to who receives the teacher’s full attention, or who will be taking maths, science, and technology classes

  • There is a greater sense of connectedness - listening, helping and accepting others’ points of view

  • Girls in girls’ schools achieve significantly stronger academic results than any other group in New Zealand
