Wesley College is a leading coeducational, open-entry, IB World School. Established more than 150 years ago, the College has enriched the lives of thousands of students throughout its history.
At the heart of Wesley’s approach to education is our commitment to developing well rounded individuals who aspire to achieve their personal best in all areas of learning.
The College supports the development of every girl and boy from early childhood years through to Senior School, across three Melbourne metropolitan campuses.
At Wesley, the concept of the classroom extends beyond the traditional school space to a variety of settings, contexts and physical locations, which expose, immerse and connect students to real-life learning opportunities. Some of these unique opportunities include:
Wesley College is one of the top VCE and IB schools in Australia, attracting students from a diverse range of countries and cultures. We have a long-standing tradition of academic success.
In 2017, 62% of our Year 12 students studied the Victorian Certificate of Education (VCE), and 38% studied the International Baccalaureate Diploma Programme (IB DP).
Here are some highlights of their outstanding achievements:
Many of our Year 12 students have received their first choice university offers from Melbourne’s top universities. With 55% of our students attending the University of Melbourne and Monash University, this reflects the high academic standard of teaching and learning at the College.
At Wesley, we offer a comprehensive curriculum which enables students to reach their full potential.
Wesley is the first authorised IB World School in Victoria to offer the IB curriculum framework from early childhood learning through to Year 12.
Wesley’s open, inclusive, safe and vibrant environment nurtures and stimulates each individual to develop as an active and responsible physical, emotional, intellectual social and spiritual being.
Students are offered a rich variety of opportunities that promote academic excellence and cocurricular learning. Individual student interests are supported through a range of extension and enrichment programs, including visual and performing arts, sport, music, outdoor education and community service.
Wesley students have won countless awards for their outstanding achievements in debating, music, visual arts, drama, literary festivals, and in national academic competitions.
Wesley’s contemporary boarding facility, Learning in Residence, is purpose built for senior school students in Years 10 to 12, who come from metropolitan Melbourne, rural Australia, and international locations across Asia and Europe.
The modern Learning in Residence facility features twin-share rooms with en suites, a central courtyard and a 240 seat communal dining room. Situated on campus adjacent to the senior school, students have immediate access to sport, music and drama facilities. Students are supported with outstanding academic mentoring, pastoral care, and a range of extension and cocurricular opportunities to help them develop intellectually, emotionally, physically, socially and spiritually.
Enrolments are open for full-time and weekly boarding options.
