Principal's Message

It is my pleasure to welcome you to Queen Margaret College, the largest private girls’ school in Wellington and one of New Zealand’s most successful and innovative schools. The College provides education from Pre-School to Year 13. We are an IB World School and the only girls’ school in the lower North Island offering the International Baccalaureate Diploma.

Established in 1919 as a Presbyterian girls’ school, our location in leafy inner-city Thorndon is ideal in providing ready access to all that a cosmopolitan capital city offers.


Queen Margaret House

From 2018, Queen Margaret College will provide onsite accommodation for girls Year 9 to 13 in their purpose built hostel, Queen Margaret House - the only one in Wellington for girls.
