Principal’s Welcome

Choosing The Right School For Your Child

I am delighted to welcome you to Sancta Maria College.  We are a co-educational College of 1000 students from Years 7 to 13.

The College was established in 2004 and follows the charism of Mary (Sancta Maria), Mother of God.  Through Mary, we bring the joy of the Gospel to the world.

The College is named after the schooner that Bishop Pompallier travelled around New Zealand in, setting up the Catholic Mission Stations.  Places of significance for this mission included the Hokianga, Kororareka (Bay of Islands), Waitemata (Auckland) and Akaroa (Christchurch). Our four College houses are named after these places.

Sancta Maria College is an outstanding school founded on the principles of our Special Catholic Character.  We excel in academia, sport, service and leadership.  We pride ourselves on our inclusive, family-oriented culture.  We celebrate the many successes and achievements which reflect the holistic education we provide for our students.

As you explore our website you will see evidence of this embodied in the events, activities and achievements of our students.

I am truly blessed to be the Educational and Spiritual Leader of Sancta Maria College and look forward to welcoming you at our College soon.
