“It works extremely well with students having done a year of NCEA and then graduating to a separate facility. Having a separate building is a very distinctive and important element. A lot of schools don’t have a common room for seniors at all, let alone having one as big as ours and combining the final two year groups together.”
John Ruge, Head of Senior College
Although the majority of our Year 12 and 13 students are already enrolled at the College, we welcome a growing number of students moving to Senior College from other schools.
Once a student has chosen St Andrew’s College, they will be challenged to exceed their goals. We will stand behind them and provide them with every resource to reach excellence across the academic, sporting and cultural arenas.
The purpose-built Rentoul Senior College Centre was developed to provide a unique space for Years 12 and 13 students, enabling them to interact independently of younger students as they participate in their final two years of schooling and transition towards life after the College. This facility includes a large common room, café, lecture theatre, study areas, computer pod and personal storage lockers.
In 2019, Xavier Dickason (then Year 12) won the World Scholar's Cup for being the international top scholar at the 2019 International Future Problem Solving Conference. Also, a total of 66 University scholarships were awarded to our leavers of 2019.
