St Thomas of Canterbury College is a very high performing State Integrated Catholic School for boys Yrs 7 – 13, recognised in Australasia for its innovative, socially just and inclusive approach to boys’ learning. We encourage our students to understand the structures which cause social injustice and to have compassion and action for those at the margins of society.

The College has a roll of 615 students plus around 25 international students. Our roll includes vibrant Maori, Pasifika and Filipino communities that make up approximately 45% of our roll.

We are inaugural winners of the Prime Minister’s National Excellence in Education Awards in 2014 and received a 5 year ERO review in 2015. We were also selected by the Education Review Office as one of the ‘Showcase schools’ to demonstrate ‘Best Practice’ for 21C learning.
