Wellington High School is an exciting place.

It is the only state, co-educational High School in the Wellington inner city area.
University research in New Zealand has shown that students from the State co-educational schools are always the highest achievers at university. We respect our students, treat them with dignity and expect them to develop their talents in a responsible manner.

Wellington High School has a highly qualified and experienced teaching staff who work hard to ensure that their students succeed, feel at home and enjoy their studies.
Traditional values of respect, hard work and consideration are stressed.

Classrooms are modern and comfortable furnished with data projectors, interactive whiteboards and wireless internet.
