If you have any queries about scholarships, please don’t hesitate to contact Karen – karen@wellesley.school.nz.

Why Wellesley?

At Wellesley, your son will be surrounded by boys who want to learn, and teachers who want to teach.

We don’t have big open-plan classrooms with tons of kids and multiple teachers because we believe that boys feel lost and can become invisible.

Our promise to you is that your boy will be seen and challenged.

Pillars: Discover through values

We’re a school for boys.

We’re a boys school, so our school programme is designed to make it easy for your son to engage with the other boys in his class and his teachers.

In this environment, he is respected for his strengths as well as his areas of need.

We are confident your son will thrive and achieve his full potential.

What does a Wellesley Boy look like?

Our boys come to us from all walks of life, but they all leave as “can-do” kids with a strong sense of belonging. A Wellesley Boy:

  • Has strong foundations in literacy and maths
  • Is a great communicator
  • Has the confidence to take risks
  • Is curious to discover
  • Is competitive, but not at all costs
  • Is prepared for secondary school.
Would you like your son to be a Wellesley Boy? We’d love to hear from you.
