Nau mai haere mai,
A very warm welcome to our special place and home away from home for our girls - Solway College.
Thank you for taking the time to explore our school and find out why you should secure your daughter's future at Solway College today.
Solway College is Wairarapa’s only school offering a true Year 7 to 13 ‘all girls’ experience, delivering a seamless curriculum covering both the intermediate and high school years, by specialist teachers at all year levels. It has become evident to me that the all girl advantage enables girls the absolute freedom to be who they are, without hesitation. Being less self-conscious allows girls to be more open, to ask questions, to have a go, to take risks, that they might not in a co-ed environment. Our young girls benefit from interacting each day alongside inspirational senior students. They see female leadership in action every day, and our girls learn at an early age to be aspirational; anything is possible for them.
Our Special Character which provides a holistic education for young women in a caring, Christian, inclusive family environment is at the heart of our school. Our close-knit family environment and very small class sizes ensure that every girl not only succeeds, but thrives. By knowing each one of our girls individually we are able to effectively target their learning, ignite their passions, develop their unique strengths, expand their thinking, and build each girl's inner confidence. At Solway College, every student counts.
This website provides just a small taste of what Solway College has to offer. I encourage you to visit us for a tour of our special school. See our learning in action, meet our friendly staff and students and explore our beautiful school.
