Primary and secondary schools are the second level of education in New Zealand and Wellington has a number of excellent schooling options to choose from.
Many children go to a school close to where they live, and many schools have an enrolment scheme called zoning. If you live in an area close to a school (the school’s zone), your child is guaranteed to get a place at that school. If you want your child to go to a school outside the area where you live, you may have to apply and a place is not guaranteed.
To help you with planning where to send your children, we've pulled together a list of some of Wellington's excellent single-sex and co-educational schooling options that are available.
