Generosity is at the very core of Wanganui Collegiate School’s history. Our founder, Sir George Grey, started the school with an endowment fund to George Selwyn – the Bishop of New Zealand, for the purpose of establishing a school. We have many wonderful stories of families giving what they can to enable our students with ability and passion to learn, and this, in turn has helped develop the school’s unparalleled spirit of independent drive and determination. Our students learn not just in the classroom and on the sports field, but most importantly from each other and from the extraordinary range and quality of the teachers, and support staff that assist them.

Development remains central to the vision for Wanganui Collegiate’s exciting future. Our aims are diverse: we plan to increase student diversity and family support, preserve our historic buildings and Collections, develop new inspirational facilities, support student led social impact projects, and build WCS’s historical endowment fund to support students in receiving a Collegiate education.
