Our commitment to providing the best all-round education has seen the demand for entry to King’s grow and girls can now begin their studies with us from Year 11 onwards.
New Girls’ Day House
In January 2020, in the year that we celebrate the 40th anniversary of girls at King’s College, we will open a second girls’ Day House.
The yet-to-be named House will be based next to the existing girls’ Day House, and girls currently in Taylor House will also have the option to move to the new House.
We are pleased to announce that Gina Adams, now former Housemaster of Taylor House will lead the new girls' Day House. Robyn Wright will take up the role of Housemaster of Taylor House.
It’s certainly an exciting time to be joining King’s College. If you would like to find out more please contact Mr Graeme Syms Head of Admissions to book your own private tour.

Senior learning programme
By starting at Year 11 girls are able to access the College’s full senior learning programme and partake in the full three years of NCEA or Cambridge International Examinations (CIE) study.
Offering our students the choice to study NCEA, CIE or, on an individual basis, a combination of both, means King’s is able to provide personalised learning pathways that allow every student to achieve their academic goals and give them the strongest possible foundation for their future.
The opportunity for girls to attend King’s for three years also allows for a greater depth of involvement in sports teams, music and cultural groups.
Network for life
Our House system underpins the positive, supportive culture at King’s and encourages our students to build strong relationships right across the College.
Middlemore House is home to all Year 11, Year 12 and Year 13 Boarding girls, while Taylor House provides a connecting hub for all Year 11, Year 12 and Year 13 Day girls. Friendships developed at King’s are often lifelong, providing our Old Collegians with a lasting network of friends and future colleagues.
We welcome enquiries for girls commencing at the College in Year 11, Year 12 and Year 13, both as Boarders and Day students.
Leadership development is another key part of the overall King’s experience. Our House system, the Chapel and the many sporting teams and co-curricular groups all offer excellent environments for our students to develop their leadership skills.
The achievements of our Old Collegians are evidence that our King’s girls go on to become confident, articulate, respected leaders who are well prepared to take on leadership roles and drive progress in their chosen professions.
