My Life at Saint Kentigern

  • “Having been at this college for the past 3 years, I now feel deeply imbedded into the Saint Kentigern community. Being a boarder, as well as getting involved with some of the countless co-curricular activities that this school offers, has worked to amplify this. People here really do care for you. The teachers, the students and all of the staff are always supporting each other, providing platforms for a huge range of people to excel in anything and everything that interests them. The diversity and the talent seen at this school is both inspiring and remarkable. I have made friendships that will stay with me forever and I know Saint Kentigern will continue to support me and be a part of who I am long into the future. This is an incredible school and no matter who you are or where you’re from there is a place here for you” – Hannah, Year 13
  • Saint Kentigern Boys’ school is an amazing place. There are so many opportunities to learn and grow whether it be in sport, culture or the academics. We have amazing grounds and facilities; a big sport center, spacious astro-turf and an incredible top field. I love the community feel at Saint Kentigern and the core values are a main part of day to day life. Saint Kentigern is an amazing school and I have enjoyed my two years here - Patrick Reidy, Year 8 (2014)
  • “Saint Kentigern Girls’ school has been an amazing experience. The first day I came to school I barely knew anyone but now I know everyone and we all work together. Being in this school is like being in a giant family because we all look out for one another and we all help each other. The first experience that I had to get to know the Year 8 students was at Year 7 camp. I was able to make connections with a lot of girls and get to know some of the parents and staff. The bonds with friends that I had made after camp grew stronger and stronger. Towards the end of the year I was chosen to be head of Hamilton house. Being a Year 8 at Saint Kentigern Girls’ School isn’t just an opportunity, it’s a privilege. Overall I couldn’t have picked a better school to go to.” - Sandia, Year 8
