WELCOME

A warm ‘Medbury Welcome’ to all of those visiting our website.

Visitors to Medbury often acknowledge that it is very different to other schools. The foundation of our school lies in our 12 Medbury Values, which are reinforced at assemblies, chapel services and daily lessons. Medbury is a boys only independent school from Year 1 to Year 8 and our dedicated staff have an understanding and a passion for boys’ education. Our Boarding House is an integral part of our school life and home to up to 38 boarders from different areas of New Zealand and overseas.

Our mission is ‘Unlocking Every Boy's Potential’ and we do this through personalised learning programmes for each boy. Our learning programme is based on the New Zealand Curriculum and boys are assessed according to national curriculum levels and against Medbury Standards. The boys' wellbeing is another priority at Medbury and our partnership with Swinburne University of Technology, via its Emotional Intelligence programme known as Aristotle EI, assists boys in their greater understanding of self and others.

We have a modern and spacious campus, which enables our classroom and specialist teachers to create stimulating and engaging lessons, which capture the imagination of the boys in their classes. Our classroom programmes are innovative and technology is embraced throughout Medbury. Importantly, laptops and other devices are used to assist with the boys' learning, but not to be the learning. I strongly believe that the balance between innovative learning and traditional expectations on bookwork and standards, sets Medbury apart from other schools.

I do hope that you find this website useful, and I welcome the chance to meet with you and your son to show you around our amazing school.
