Southwell is a dynamic, inspiring and nurturing, Year 1 to 8, coeducational, Day and Boarding School that is set in the heart of Hamilton City on a magniﬁcent campus. Southwell offers an educational experience designed to inspire individual achievement, strong personal values and conﬁdence for life.
Everyone performs on the stage at Southwell as we aim to expose our boys and girls to a magniﬁcent array of oral, musical, instrumental and theatrical opportunities. We aim to develop each student’s conﬁdence to perform and act before others. From choirs to individual speech tuition, our opportunities are vast.
Our learning is personalised, modern, relevant and meaningful to the individual. Small class sizes, specialist homeroom and subject teachers allow our students’ minds and gifts to be exposed. Our learning is underpinned by our Southwell Values of: Integrity, Respect, Caring, Resilience, Creativity and Excellence. We deﬁne excellence as ‘giving your best’.
Southwell Boarding is a caring, family based environment with around 50 to 60 boys and girls from Years 5 to 8. Our routines, structures and care aim to provide a home-like atmosphere where each student’s academic, social, physical and emotional wellbeing are occurring seamlessly. Southwell Boarding develops life skills like no other environment.
We love our sport at Southwell and offer a wide range of sport options with speciﬁc training and match times weekly. We offer internal options, play in Waikato club competitions and have historic midweek ﬁxtures with 10 other Independent Schools played in both summer and winter seasons. Our aim is to create better people through sport.
