Located in the beautiful Wairarapa, Solway College has a long and proud history of providing top quality education to New Zealand’s future achievers. Established in 1916 Solway has consistently provided a holistic education for young women from Years 7 to 13. Solway offers a limited number of day girl places and a variety of boarding options.

Solway College is an integrated school and has a defined special character that makes it unique. We aim to develop leadership, foster self-confidence and bring out the best in each girl.

Students at Solway College excel in academic achievement as shown by the fact that NCEA results are consistently well above the national averages. Solway’s commitment to excellent teaching, small class sizes and catering for the individual needs of each student ensures that this will continue.

Solway was established to provide an excellent, progressive education based on Christian teaching and values in a family environment, an education that develops the whole person: intellectually, physically, culturally and spiritually.
