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. We are proud of our high NCEA pass rates 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 also embedded a unique learning toolkit called Selwise, which is empowering our students to be successful agents of their own learning.
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 and contribute to Selwyn’s recognition as a leading school.
