Taranaki Diocesan School for Girls


Established in 1914, Taranaki Dioceasan School  is a boutique school for girls, offering small classes and a modern boarding environment with a single room. The school is safe and friendly, with a family atmosphere. We are only 30 minutes, from New Plymouth, at the edge of Mount Egmont National Park.

Taranaki Dioceasan School’s academic strengths are performing and visual arts and science. Girls gain entrance to universities of their choice and their results in national examinations are outstanding. We are the regional champions in both Young Enterprise Business Studies and Maori performing arts. We encourage each girl to reach her full potential. Extra-curricular opportunities include cultural performances, sports teams, camps, outdoor education, volunteering opportunities and an International Committee.

Our international students enjoy their experience, as boarding creates lifelong friendships, and superior English language skills and international student gain leadership roles. New international students are welcomed by a student buddy. Students are supported by our International Dean who also arranges individualised English lessons.
