Queen Margaret College is Wellington’s leading independent girls’ school. Established in 1919, we provide a world class education for girls Year 1–13 and have a co-educational Preschool onsite. In 2018 we opened our purpose built boarding facility, Queen Margaret House, offering accommodation to international and domestic Year 9–13 students.
Queen Margaret College is the only girls’ school in the lower North Island to offer a dual qualification pathway of either the International Baccalaureate (IB) Diploma or NCEA. We have a reputation for excellent academic results through both pathways.
Our school is small enough to ensure every girl is valued and nurtured to reach their full potential whilst being large enough to provide the choice of a diverse range of subjects. Students are empowered to live, learn and lead throughout their school lives with access to opportunities in leadership, sport and cultural activities. Although our school is built on the values of Presbyterianism we welcome girls from all religions and backgrounds
