Building foundations for life


John McGlashan College is a high-performing Year 7-13 secondary school for boarders and dayboys in Dunedin, a long-established university city in New Zealand. 

The college understands the individuality of each boy and we provide every student with strong foundations for life and extensive opportunities to develop his abilities.  Over the decades, McGlashan men have become leaders in business and agriculture and in academic and professional fields. 

At McGlashan, we value intellectual excellence, aesthetic awareness and the ideal of a healthy mind in a healthy body.  We believe in the standards of our Christian heritage: honesty, respect and concern for others are fundamental to the way we do things.  We expect our boys to become well-educated, independent young men of integrity.

We are committed to academic excellence and we offer four clear pathways to qualifications:

  • NCEA - National Certificate of Educational Achievement
  • IB - International Baccalaureate Diploma Programme
  • The Centre of Excellence for Agricultural Science and Business
  • Gateway
