Our School

An independent, co-educational, day and boarding school for Years 1 to 8, Southwell School is located in the centre of Hamilton city and is situated on approximately 30 acres of beautifully presented grounds.


In 2011 we celebrated our centenary.  This brought together members of the Southwell community for numerous celebrations hosted throughout the year.

We are unique.  Not only do we offer small class sizes, specialist teachers and fabulous places in which to learn.  But we are an extremely enthusiastic community, and support our students in a safe and fun environment.  We have an excellent team of highly-qualified and deeply committed staff.    To support the staff and students, we provide up-to-date equipment and great facilities, providing an environment in which academic, cultural, spiritual and sporting opportunities can be maximised.

The Headmaster is responsible for the management of the School and is supported by three Deputy Headmasters who look after Curriculum, Operations and Human Resources.  Each year group/syndicate is coordinated by a Dean.
