Welcome to St Bernard's College

St Bernard's College is an integrated Catholic School for Boys from Year 7 to 13 (Form 1 to 7). The Marist Brothers, in response to Archbishop McKeefry's call, opened St Bernard's School in 1946. The spirit of the Marist Brothers is still an integral part of the culture of the College. The College is part of a proud tradition of Catholic Education in New Zealand, offering an education with a special character.

Mission Statement

The College's intent is to supply a good education in an environment generated by Gospel values to pupils whose parents choose a Catholic education for their children.

The College

St Bernard's College is located in the centre of Lower Hutt, 20 minutes from Wellington, New Zealand's capital city. It serves the Catholic community across the Hutt Valley and Wellington area. The maximum roll has grown and is 660 pupils. It is an ideal size. It allows the College to provide a full and varied range of subjects and activities. The college roll is small enough to ensure a caring, safe and personalised environment. Our priority is to create a school which challenges each student to reach his potential spiritually, academically and socially. We promote self discipline and respect for others. Old Boys from St Bernard's College have become leading figures in our community.
