Why Consider an All-Boys School?

Boys’ schools are a well-established part of the NZ education system and a popular choice for many New Zealanders. One reason for Wellington College’s popularity is that our academic results are amongst the highest in New Zealand. Although there are no girls in our classrooms, we have a strong partnership with our sister school, Wellington Girls’ College, and there are numerous opportunities for joint activities with girls both in and out of school time.
