Welcome to Marlborough Boys' College

125th Anniversary Celebration 2024 (1)_e

Marlborough Boys' College is committed to providing educational programmes, which meet the needs of our students. Our work both inside and outside the classroom is focused on creating and maintaining an effective learning community.

Tēnā koutou te Whānau Whanui Te Kāreti taitama o Wairau. 

We have a long and proud history of providing the young men of Blenheim, and the surrounding districts, with challenging opportunities and high standards of excellence in all aspects of daily life.


Our vision

Our school vision and values are at the core of what we do here at Marlborough Boys’ College. They are respect, responsibility, involvement and pride, while striving to be the best that they can be!


Underpinning our vision to ensure all our students succeed is the fundamental belief that it takes hard work to strive for their best academic qualification. We have an experienced and committed team of teachers here at Marlborough Boys’ College to ensure that the highest levels of academic achievement can be obtained through focus and determination.

We continue to increase the number of subjects in the senior school that align with an educational approach to learning; STEAM. It uses Science, Technology, Engineering, the Arts and Mathematics as access points for guiding student inquiry, dialogue, and critical thinking.

Current future job trends highlight the importance of offering multiple pathways into the workforce, as well as enabling our young men to advance their academic studies at a tertiary institution of their choice. We are committed to providing a safe and inclusive school environment for all our students.

Manaakitia te tangata, ahakoa ko wai, ahakoa nō hea 

Treat people respectfully, irrespective of who they are or where they come from. 

We encourage our young men to embrace all academic, sporting and cultural pursuits, to discover a new passion and to contribute to the life of the school. 


I warmly welcome you to visit the school in person and to meet our amazing students and teachers here at Marlborough Boys’ College. To arrange a visit, please email the office or telephone 03 5780119. 


Noho ora mai,


John Kendal
