Wesley College is a leading coeducational, open-entry International Baccalaureate World 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

The boarding program at Wesley, called Learning in Residence, is situated onsite at the Glen Waverley Campus.

Introduced just five years ago, the boarding program builds on more than a century of success in residential learning at Wesley with a contemporary program designed for the students of today.

Each student is recognised as an individual, and assisted to develop across the six domains of learning through favourable student-to-staff ratios, an innovative boarding curriculum and contemporary modern living facilities with twin-share for Years 9 to 11 and solo rooms for Year 12 students, access to the College’s state-of-the-art sporting facilities and teaching staff.

The boarding experience at Wesley is an extension of the True Education offered at Wesley, and the wraparound approach at Learning in Residence is designed to meet each student's individual needs as a boarder and learner, and their goals as a young person.

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 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 our unparalleled opportunities for students to explore their interests and talents across a 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

Our students graduate 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.
