Dale Burden, Headmaster
Welcome to Mount Albert Grammar School
Mount Albert Grammar School has successfully served its
community since 1922. The School has consistently achieved
excellence in academic, sporting and cultural areas. The School
offers a high quality of educational opportunity amidst the
strong traditions of one of the oldest and best schools in
In 2000, the School enrolled girls for the first time. Since then, the girls' roll has grown to over 1000 and, combined with the boys' roll, sees the school now at about 2500 students. Our school has all the advantages of a large school, yet offers all of the warmth, encouragement and family-like qualities of a small school. The Junior School (Years 9 and 10) is a self-contained "school within a school", providing a unique blend of single-sex education and co-education for the initial two years.
Mount Albert Grammar School has a staff of well-qualified and dedicated professionals who work in excellent facilities.
The Education Review Office describes Mount Albert Grammar School as: A high-performing academic school (ERO report 2010).
Our students consistently produce top academic and sporting results. The NCEA and Scholarship results are far in excess of national averages and our sports teams regularly win Auckland and National championships.
The Arts at the school continues to grow and thrive under the outstanding leadership of the staff.
Specialist programmes, such as the Academic Institute and
sports academies, cater for the needs of the elite academics and
sports people. Successful sports academies operate in athletics,
basketball, cricket, football, netball and rugby.
We set high standards at Mount Albert Grammar School and we have high expectations of our students. "The MAGS Way" is a series of six important values that underpin our school culture and provide guiding principles for our students.
Parents are very welcome at our school. Please do not hesitate
to call on any matter concerning your child's education.
I am proud to be the sixth headmaster of this outstanding school. It is a happy and caring place where students can reach their potential.
