He manawa reurere, he māreikura aumangea, he rangatira mō anamata.

Principal's Message

Kia Ora and welcome to Queen Margaret College, Wellington’s leading independent girls’ school. We provide a world class education for girls from Year 1–13 and also have a co-educational Preschool and boarding facility onsite.

Our students are empowered to live, learn and lead in our holistic environment, which provides ample opportunities in leadership, sport and cultural activities. Although our school is built on the values of Presbyterianism we welcome girls from all religions and backgrounds.
