About Iona College

Come and share our vision

Iona College is a boarding and day school for girls from Years 7-13. Consistently one of the top achieving schools nationally, Iona has a vision for education which builds on tradition to equip students with the confidence and skills needed for a challenging future.

There is a tangible sense of warmth and belonging at Iona

It is a place where girls can be entirely comfortable; where they feel happy and safe in a warm, family-oriented environment.

Our purpose is to encourage our girls to embrace their education–wholeheartedly; to see them emerge with vision and optimism, and to prepare them to take their places as confident and compassionate young women, driven to make a difference, wherever they choose to live and work.

The openly-stated goal of an Iona education –Empowering Girls for Life–represents an inspirational position, and an aspirational outlook. We want our students to unleash their potential not only during their years at school, but well beyond.

Open Day 2020


Following the Government and Ministry of Health guidelines relating to public events, Iona College took an early decision to postpone our Open Day which was to be held on Saturday, 28 March 2020.

Whilst the College is extremely regretful that this event has had to be postponed, our immediate priority is the health and wellbeing of our community and taking all measures to protect our families and all of New Zealand from the spread of COVID-19.

We hope to reschedule an Open Day event for later in the year and we look forward to sharing this with you nearer the time

You may register your interest to attend below and we will keep you updated nearer the time.
