About Queen Elizabeth College

As a New Zealand co-educational school, Queen Elizabeth College uses a student centred philosophy that values whānau and the acceptance of individual differences.

Kotahitanga, a sense of unity and belonging, is a core belief promoted through providing essential support to families and students. We value the opportunity to foster a partnership with families - a collaboration that has the same goal and focus of providing an environment and opportunities for students to succeed.

It is through these values that students of Queen Elizabeth College are able to enjoy an encouraging family atmosphere, and feel proud of their college and their accomplishments.Providing educational excellence in Manawatu, Palmerston North
