Student Support

Wellington High School has many staff to help students settle quickly into their new school and new country. After 40 years of a highly successful international programme staff understand international students’ needs.


Wellington High School is a signatory and has agreed to observe and be bound by the Education Code 2016 (Code of Practice for the Pastoral Care of International Students) published by the New Zealand Qualifications Authority. Copies of the Code are available from us or from the New Zealand Qualifications Authority website here Staff ensure the students understand what is expected of them with a thorough orientation programme and through the Behaviour contract which all students sign.   To help international students settle quickly Wellington High students act as KIWI buddies and introduce new students to their own friends and activities so that they quickly adapt to life down under. Both sets of students enjoy the buddy system.
