Welcome to Wellesley College

Tēnā Koutou Katoa,

It is my privilege to welcome you and your boy(s) to Wellesley, an Independent Primary School for Boys in Years 1-8.

Wellesley’s aim is to bring out the best in each boy.  Our approach focuses on developing each boy in mind, body and spirit, which gives each of them a platform to excel. Using our unique environment and building positive relationships with our ākonga, students, together we embrace our school values in order to discover the best versions of ourselves. In a world of constant change and increasing disruption, we believe that empowering each boy to find his potential, and unlock his passions, will ultimately be how he will succeed in his own special way.

Wellesley values all aspects of the education process. Our teaching and learning philosophy focuses not only on academic achievement, but also on a holistic approach where developing leadership skills, confidence, resilience, wellbeing and curiosity is at the forefront of our minds. Wellesley has a rich history, so we take lessons from past experiences and blend 100 years of tradition with future-focused innovative thinking in our education.

Our kura, school, is proud of its strong set of values, and our expectations of our boys and community are high. All staff are consummate professionals and make up the rich fabric that keeps the heart of Wellesley beating.

Again, welcome and we hope your whānau finds the journey with Wellesley rewarding. If you have suggestions or ideas on areas that require review, I would encourage you to contact us at office@wellesley.school.nz and provide your feedback directly.

Ngā Mihi Nui,

Michael Bain – Principal
