The Queen Margaret College Sports Department focuses on two pathways for students: participation and performance.

The participation pathway provides sporting opportunities for all students and can be both competitive and social.

The performance pathway is for students making school premier teams, New Zealand squads, age groups or development teams, and is underpinned by a philosophy of support, growth and empowerment.

We currently have ninety percent of students taking part in our Queen Margaret College Sports Programme and offer many sporting opportunities to cater to the varied interests of students.
