Marlborough High School was founded in 1900 as a co-educational, academic high school. It was not until
1919 that the name was changed to Marlborough College.
When a new international student arrives at Marlborough Girls' College, an initial assessment determines the number of hours a student needs to spend studying English and at what level. An extensive programme for speakers of other languages is available for girls from every language background.
The curriculum offered at Marlborough Girls’ College is
dynamic and responsive to the changes in the prescribed National Curriculum.
We prepare our students for qualification at all levels. Year 9 and 10 students are encouraged to work
towards the Marlborough Girls’ college junior certificate. This certificate is based on a system of
points per subject and is similar to the NCEA model in the Senior school. Students are able to achieve their
junior certificate endorsed with Merit and Excellence.
At Years 11, 12 and 13 students achieve NCEA credits and in Year 13 students are able to sit scholarship.
Multi-level studying is also available
