ACG Sunderland

Exceptional learning, traditional values and individualised care make ACG Sunderland an outstanding choice for families seeking a world-class education from Preschool to Year 13.

    • Exceptional learning

      Academically focussed, and strongly supported by extra-curricular activities, ACG Sunderland inspires students to be the very best they can be. Exceptional learning is at the heart of all we do, from our high-quality teachers to our personalised approach to learning, and unique school culture. Our students strive towards personal and academic excellence in a nurturing and supportive environment.

    • Strong family & community values

      We are an independent, co-educational day school underpinned by strong family values and a keen sense of pride in our traditions. Nestled on nine acres of landscaped grounds in the heart of West Auckland, we are named after the Sunderland flying boats which were based at Hobsonville and are an important part of the history of our community.

    • Internationally recognised education

      ACG Sunderland is proud to be part of a worldwide network of schools that offer Cambridge International Examinations. Our students graduate with prestigious, internationally recognised qualifications, and the best educational and career pathways. We equip students with the knowledge, skills and attributes they need for success in their chosen field, anywhere in the world.

    • Continuous education

      From Preschool to Year 13, ACG Sunderland balances academic excellence with a range of sporting, cultural and art programmes, in an inclusive and nurturing environment.

    • Seven schools - a united approach

      ACG Schools offer world-class education at seven independent schools across New Zealand and Asia, catering to a variety of student needs in a range of locations.

      Our ambition is for every one of our students to unleash their potential. Through outstanding individual care, we create grounded, critical-thinking students who go on to fulfill their potential in life.
