Wesley College is a leading coeducational, open-entry school. Established more than 150 years ago, the College has enriched the lives of thousands of students through its outstanding liberal, broad-based curriculum. International students from a range of cultures choose Wesley because of our strong tradition of academic excellence, outstanding curricular and cocurricular programs and state-of-the-art facilities.

Wesley has three metropolitan campuses in Melbourne:

  • Elsternwick, 3-year-olds to Year 9
  • Glen Waverley, 3-year-olds to Year 12
  • St Kilda Road, 3-year-olds to Year 12

Boarding at Wesley

Wesley's dynamic new boarding facility, Learning in Residence, is purpose-built for Senior School students (Years 10–12), from metropolitan Melbourne, rural Australia and various international locations.

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.

Academic excellence

Wesley places the highest value on academic excellence, and encourages each student to aspire to achieve excellence in all areas of learning.

Wesley is one of the top Victorian Certificate of Education (VCE) and International Baccalaureate (IB) schools in Australia, and one of the only schools in Victoria to offer the IB continuum from Primary through to Middle and Senior Schools.

Cocurricular learning

What sets Wesley apart are the opportunities for students to explore their interests and talents across a rich variety of activities, from visual and performing arts, to sport, music, outdoor education and community service. With a choice of 19 sports, 23 bands, 21 chamber ensembles, 16 choirs, 10 orchestras, 7 musicals and 4 theatre performances, there’s something for every student. Wesley students have won countless awards for their outstanding work - in debating, music, visual arts, drama and literary festivals.

Tertiary destinations

Graduating students move on with much more than an ATAR score. Each student is encouraged to aspire to achieve excellence and personal best in all areas of endeavour. The majority of students are offered a place at either The University of Melbourne or Monash University. Many also choose to study at leading international universities including Oxford, Cambridge and Harvard, within such fields as medicine, law, commerce, politics, science and information technology. Students applying to study at The University of Melbourne may receive preferential entry through the Melbourne Schools Partnership International, of which Wesley College is a member.
