Finding the right fit

Exceptional Learning

The College’s academic success is represented through our students’ excellent NCEA achievements, Scholarship results and transitions into vocational pathways.

We are recognised as one of the top schools in New Zealand to have graduates entering some of the best universities.

A Love of Learning

“I like how subjects are a mix of class participation, hands on experience and text book learning. I feel I actually ‘get’ what a subject is about.” Adam, Year 10

A balanced education

Learning is not just about academics – students learn many vital skills through co-curricular activities.

There are many exciting co-curricular opportunities at Long Bay College and students are encouraged to take full advantage of these, starting from Year 9.

Discover your passion

"With the help of the College's very supportive teachers, I have already achieved more than what I expected in my grades while my Football has gone next level."

“My first day I was a bit scared, I was worried about making friends and getting lost. Everyone was so nice though that by the end of the week I felt I had belonged at LBC forever.” Issy, Year 9
