St Paul's Collegiate School is a private (independent) Anglican secondary school in Hamilton, New Zealand. Opened in 1959 originally as a boys only school, the school began admitting girls in years 12 to 13 in 1985, then girls in years 11 to 13 in 2010.
St Paul's Collegiate was founded by the local Anglican community including the parents of some Southwell School students, but today only a small proportion of St Pauls students are former Southwell students.
The school also owns and operates Tihoi Venture School, located on the edge of the Pureora Forest Park around 50 km west of Taupo. Year 10 students attend Tihoi for two terms (18 weeks) as part of an adventure-based character development and education programme.
As a private school, St Paul's Collegiate receives little funding from the government and charges parents of students tuition fees to cover costs. As of 2013, the school fees are approximately NZ$17,400 per year for day students and NZ$30,400 for boarders. The exception is in Year 10 with the 18 weeks at Tihoi Venture School, where the fees are NZ$26,200 for day students and NZ$31,700 for boarders. Fees for international students are higher.
At the March 2012 Education Review Office (ERO) review of the school, St Paul's Collegiate had 675 students, including 31 international students. The school's gender composition was 85% male and 15% female, or 72% male and 28% female once the boys-only Years 9 and 10 are excluded. Around 71% of students at the school identified as New Zealand European (Pakeha), 9% as Maori, and 5% each as Chinese, Indian, and Pacific Islanders.
