Welcome to Solway College - Nau mai ki Solway College
The school where every girl counts!
Situated in Masterton in the beautiful Wairarapa, our school is nestled in 13 hectares of beautiful lawns and garden with our own tennis courts and swimming pool.
Masterton is a short trip by car or train (approx 90 minutes) to Wellington, New Zealand's capital city. Flights are available from Wellington Airport to other New Zealand centres.
Established in 1916, we are steeped in history and we consistently provide a holistic education for young women in Years 7 – 13 ( ages 10-18)
Our boarding students live in newly refurbished hostels. We have boarding places available however, we will organise homestays on request and for all school holidays.
Our class sizes are very small and our priority is to meet all individual student’s needs. We are renowned for our excellent academic results and have been the top Wairarapa achieving college,in NCEA, 2012 and 2013. Not only are we a top academic college, we are also top in sporting codes.
We are committed to offering an excellent academic programme and excellent pastoral care. We are a small caring community basing our day to day life on Christian values. We also aim to offer extra-curricular opportunities to ensure that our international students gain the most from their New Zealand Solway experience.
Our Solway community always enjoys welcoming international students from a variety of countries. We feel we learn as much from our visiting students as they learn from us.
