I am delighted you are interested in Selwyn College. We are on an exciting journey where each student is learning to be ‘The Best You Can Be’.
Academic achievement is a significant priority for us. It is wonderful to see all our NCEA pass rates are well above 90% and that many of our students are gaining Excellence and Merit endorsed Certificates and University Scholarships.
We have capitalized on the size of our school to develop a unique personalised mentoring system which supports each student to pursue their goals with confidence.
We have embedded a unique learning toolkit called Selwise, which is empowering our students to be successful agents of their own learning. Many national and international visitors are visiting Selwyn to learn about this.
The development of each student’s all-round competencies is also a significant priority. Participation in our rich leadership, sports, performing arts and cultural programmes is expected and we delight in celebrating students who achieve their best.
We want our students to love coming to school every day. So, we have built a welcoming, vibrant, respectful and purposeful learning community, to which our students feel strongly connected.
Our comprehensive student support services, exceptional commitment to our teachers’ professional learning and our strong home-school partnerships also underpin our students’ wellbeing and success.
Hence, Selwyn is now being recognised as a leading school in the type of professional practice that truly enables each student to become ‘The Best You Can Be’.
