St Andrew's College, is a fully-independent, private, co-educational school for pre-school to Year 13 day and boarding students. At St Andrew's, proud Scottish Presbyterian traditions and values, academic rigour, and exceptional sporting, cultural and leadership opportunities combine for an education that is truly world class and a life experience that is unforgettable.
St Andrew’s College is a thriving, bustling community of 1,531 male and female students located in suburban Merivale, just five minutes by car from the centre of Christchurch. We accommodate day and boarding students, and welcome international students from around the world into our unique, close-knit community. Our teaching and learning programmes cater for students from pre-school to Year 13. In 2011 we celebrated 20 years of co-education and in 2017 we celebrated our Centenary. Beautiful Strowan House – a heritage building – is the frontispiece to our spacious grounds that nestle alongside tree-lined Strowan Stream.
