Wellington East Girls' College




Welcome to Wellington East Girls' College, a state school set amidst park like grounds in the heart of the capital city of New Zealand.   The school has recently undergone an extensive renovation and now is one of the most modern and well equipped education facilities in New Zealand.


  • A high level of quality personal care and service delivered every day in and out of school.  We keep in close contact with agents and families to tell them of their daughter's progress.
  • Exceptional English language support with the best resourced department and highest number of class options in the region.
  • A wide ranging set of courses with options in all subject areas of the New Zealand curriculum, including some subjects offered only at our school (Wellington region).
  • Superb location with the city centre, airport and the region’s main sporting facilities all within the school zone.  In addition, the school sits on a hillside enjoying good views of the city and harbour and contains many well maintained garden areas.
  • The many cultures represented at school provide opportunity to celebrate and enjoy what makes us different.  This diversity ensures a level of tolerance and understanding across our student body.
  • High quality, caring and involved homestay families ensure that our international students experience warm, friendly and welcoming homes to return to each day.
