Ashburton College

Ashburton College

Ashburton College is situated in the bustling hub of Mid Canterbury, the heart of New Zealand’s beautiful South Island. The College has the advantage of being the “right size”, and in the “right place”. We have higher than the national average academic results, exceptional sporting successes and have outstanding performances in art, drama and music. Every year a number of our students achieve national and international selection and success. Outdoor Education programme allows students to make the most of the snow-capped mountains and crystal clear lakes. 

There are plenty of activities outside of school to keep you entertained. These include the stunning Recreation Centre that features several heated swimming pools, spa and steam room.  There are multiple golf courses, an international hockey pitch, and a tennis centre, all in easy walking distance of the College. If you are a water enthusiast you can swim, row, water-ski or fish at Lake Hood.  If you love the outdoors there are numerous breath-taking tramps and mountain biking tracks on your doorstep. And of course we have less than hours’ drive away Mt Hutt, voted best ski field in New Zealand!

We look forward to welcoming you.
