Wellesley Scholarships – Promising Futures for Boys

We are delighted that you are considering Wellesley for your son’s education.  Wellesley Scholarships are life-changing: We have seen the transformation, not only in the boys, but in their families and their communities.

Our Staff are passionate about the development of each student. Wellesley has a special character which includes its teaching and learning philosophy, engaging boys, providing learning opportunities and wrapping the curriculum around their passions.

We strive to equip boys with confidence, develop resilience and teach them to think critically about their learning. Our point of difference is in our personalisation and warm, welcoming culture. Our boys feel like they belong to a special place and are part of the Wellesley family. We encourage them to live by the Wellesley Values: To take risks, to persevere under challenging circumstances and to demonstrate respect and empathy in all their interactions.

All Wellesley Scholarships are based on the philosophy that the recipient would not normally be able to access the school due to the circumstances they face. This means that Scholarship recipients may not have the financial ability to fund the fees from any family member or donor who would offer to pay for their attendance at the school.

Scholarships are only open to NZ Citizens and Permanent Residents and are valid for a two year period.

We will acknowledge your application upon receipt, and successful applicants will be notified in writing of interview dates.
