We welcome your interest in Sacred Heart College. Our College has evolved through the vision, dedication and history of Marist Brothers. We inspire our students to be the very best that they can be, to make something special of themselves, no matter what their talents are. We focus on creating supportive, compassionate relationships, both between the boys themselves, the boys and staff, within the staff and wider community.  The atmosphere is welcoming, warm and down-to-earth with a deep sense of humility.

Consistent with the special character of the College, preference is given to families with an established connection with the Catholic Church and in accordance with the guidelines approved by the Catholic Bishops of New Zealand in 2003.

Enrolment at Sacred Heart College is primarily for students in Year 7 and 9 for Day boys, and Year 9 for Boarders. However, we do have limited places available in other year levels.
