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.

Ninety percent of students currently take part in the Queen Margaret College Sports Programme and offer many sporting opportunities to cater to the varied interests of students.

We offer athletics and swimming as part of the school curriculum and students take part in competitions run by these codes. We also support ski teams and an equestrian team in their events. Outside of school, many many students compete in other sports and we celebrate their achievements.

In 2018, Queen Margaret College won the CSW Tennis and Water polo Premier divisions and the CSW Netball Premier 2 competition. Our Senior A Basketball team made the finals of the CSW Premier Basketball competition. Students also won gold at the the Aon Maadi Cup, the New Zealand Secondary Schools National Rowing championships. We also had 13 students who were New Zealand representatives and/or title holders in their respective sports.

Queen Margaret College has excellent onsite sports facilities for the students to enjoy and to maintain their fitness. These include two school gymnasiums, a tennis court and a specialist fitness centre.
