Waihi School to welcome girls in Term 1, 2021

An exciting opportunity for boys and girls to have a family prep school experience

We are very pleased to announce that Waihi School will welcome girls in Years 4-8, as both day pupils and boarders, from Term 1 next year.

As a result of our strategic review earlier this year, Waihi has been considering moving to co-education in order to mirror the more inclusive and diverse community in which we live. We have also listened to the comments of Waihi parents who have expressed their desire to be able to give the same opportunities to their daughters, which their sons enjoy, of the unique Waihi experience. We are now delighted to now offer this opportunity to families.

The resolution to move to co-education has been made by the Trust Board. All board members are excited at what lies ahead for the school with the expansion of our Waihi family.

Central to our move to welcome girls, was ensuring that we retain and enhance Waihi’s values, ethos, traditions and its aims. These will remain unchanged. Waihi will continue to offer its pupils an education for life.
