Welcome to our website, particularly to those current and past parents, Old Boys and any parents who may be considering applying to join the Medbury School Family. 

After 25 years in education, both working in the independent and state sector both overseas and here in New Zealand, has given me significant insight into what is needed to provide a quality education for boys.   My own experience and research shows that boys learn differently to girls, and Medbury provides a caring and safe environment where boys can flourish.

Medbury School has just celebrated its 90th year and we can reflect on a long history of educational achievement.  We acknowledge that every boy has a talent and our role here at Medbury is to discover this and unlock his true potential.  Our holistic approach to education enables boys to succeed not only academically, but also culturally and through sport.  Underpinning this ethos are our traditional Christian values which are an integral feature of Medbury daily life, whether it be in the classroom, on the sports field, in the playground and beyond the school gates.

One of Medbury's greatest strengths is its extended family.  With a strong Parents' Assocation, dedicated Trust Board, a large network of Old Boys and the ongoing support from the Medbury Foundation, all combining to create a caring and forward thinking culture.

Our Boarding House is an integral part of our school life, and home to up to forty-three boarders from different areas of New Zealand and overseas.  Living 'on-site' provides the opportunity for my family to become part of the Boarding House and help to create a home-away-from-home environment.

I invite you to visit the School to meet me personally, to see the boys in action and have an opportunity to view our splendid grounds and facilities.
