Principal’s Address

Tēnā Koutou Katoa,

It is my privilege to welcome you and your boy(s) to Wellesley College, 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.
