Patrick Drumm, Headmaster
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 Auckland.
In 2000, the School enrolled girls for the first time. Since then, the girls' roll has grown to over 1100 and, combined with the boys' roll, sees the school now at about 2700 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 has consistently made a point of commending the school for its outstanding academic achievements: "Student achievement in NCEA is higher than national averages and is considerably higher than averages for other similar schools." Click here to read the latest ERO Report
In Scholarship, New Zealand's top secondary school academic award, our school is the fifth most successful in the country.
We offer a diverse range of sporting opportunities for students. While we believe that participation is an important aspect of sport, our teams and individual students regularly win Auckland and National championships.
The Arts at the school continue to grow and thrive under the outstanding leadership of staff.
Successful sports academies operate in Aquatics, Basketball, Cricket, Football, Netball, Rowing and Rugby.
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 seventh headmaster of this outstanding school. It is a happy and caring place where students can reach their potential.
