Welcome to Epsom Girls Grammar School
Welcome to Epsom Girls Grammar School. We are very proud of this school which has challenged and supported young women since 1917 and has produced many leaders in a variety of walks of life. Achievement has always been important in the school in academic, sporting and cultural activities and we are proud of our results in all these areas on both a local and a national level.
We are a large school yet we aim to treat all students as individuals. I want all students to feel they belong and are confident in the school. We focus on identifying and catering for individual academic and pastoral needs.
Positive, supportive relationships between students and teachers form the basis for learning and these are what we promote in the school. We want our students to be confident, active partners in their learning taking full advantage of all that the school can offer them. Having their own internet capable devices allows them to be guided by their teachers but independent in their learning. Blended learning using both books and devices is the way we learn and digital citizenship skills are essential for everyone.
Leadership is an important issue for us and we provide many opportunities for this. As a girls school, we are able to build the confidence and the skills of many young women. As we move closer to our centenary in 2017 we look back at the leaders who have already influenced our country and forward to those who are still emerging.
Our school reflects the richness of New Zealand society and prepares young women for success in their future. Join us as we learn, grow and share together.
