Parents & Education

A website about education for parents and carers


Welcome to the 2015 School year!

Please read this information below as there have been some changes:




Craighead Diocesan School is a State-Integrated Christian Year 7-13 Boarding and Day school for girls, situated in Timaru, South Canterbury. We have a maximum roll of 380 students with families who come from a wide geographic area, such as Canterbury, North Otago, the West Coast and occasionally the North Island.

Craighead is committed to the pursuit of excellence in all fields of endeavour (spiritual, academic, physical and cultural), with emphasis on the development of each girl within a caring, Christian family atmosphere so that each is well-educated, well-adjusted, responsible, confident and capable of contributing to society. Our students are confident, connected and actively involved life-long learners.

We hope that the information provided on this website is helpful and informative.

We welcome any enquiries regarding the availability of places in the school at all year levels. Please feel free to contact us.
