A True Education

At Wesley, we believe in a True Education - one that realises the full potential of every girl and boy.

Our rich and comprehensive coeducational program promotes not only excellent academic results, but also supports students’ learning through a wide range of cocurricular programs, including Visual and Performing Arts, Sport, Music, Outdoor Education and Community Service.

Wesley College is a leading coeducational, open-entry school. Established over 150 years ago, the College has enriched the lives of thousands of students throughout its history.

At the heart of Wesley’s approach to education is our commitment to developing well rounded individuals who aspire to achieve their personal best in all areas of learning.

The College supports the development of every girl and boy from early childhood years through to Senior School, across 3 campuses.

- Elsternwick: 3 year olds to Year 9
- Glen Waverley: 3 year olds to Year 12
- St Kilda Road: 3 year olds to Year 12

In addition to providing an outstanding education within the classroom, we are also renowned for the real-life learning opportunities we offer our students, which include:

- A Studio School in the Kimberley, Western Australia
- A dynamic, new boarding facility, Learning in Residence

International Baccalaureate at Wesley College

Wesley College is one of the leading International Baccalaureate (IB) coeducational schools in Australia, and is the only school in Victoria to offer an IB Programme which spans from Primary through to Senior School.

Our world-class IB Programme includes:
• The International Baccalaureate Primary Years Programme (IB PYP) – 3 Years-olds to Year 6
• The Middle Years Programme (IB MYP) – Years 7 to 10
• The International Baccalaureate Diploma Programme (IB DP) - Years 11 and 12

The IB Programme applies Wesley’s ethos of a True Education, providing a balanced approach to learning, with an emphasis on developing the whole person. It aims to instil in our students enquiring, internationally- minded thinking, in order to become active, compassionate, global citizens.

Primary Years Programme (IB PYP)

At Wesley College, the Primary Years Programme (PYP) is focused on building our students’ conceptual understanding, knowledge, skills and attitudes, not only to excel in their studies, but also for their personal growth and understanding of the world. It is grounded in a deep belief about the nature of learning and a desire to develop students who have an international outlook.

Six transdisciplinary themes of global significance provide a dynamic framework for exploration and study:
• Who we are
• Where we are in place and time
• How we express ourselves
• How the world works
• How we organise ourselves
• Sharing the planet

An international education is dynamic and responds to ever-changing global needs. Through an exploration of concepts such as conflict resolution, cultural identity, individual and collective responsibility and sustainability, we aim to develop in our children an understanding of their power to enact change at personal, local and global levels.
— Wesley College Primary Staff

Middle Years Programme (IB MYP)

The Middle Years Programme (MYP) enables students to learn and grow during a pivotal time in their lives. It builds on the knowledge and skills developed through the IB PYP, fostering a sense of intellectual curiosity, and providing students with an opportunity to express their thoughts and perspectives on what they have learnt.

Diploma Programme (IB DP)

Wesley offers a number of pathways to Senior School students, and a growing number of students (nearly half the Year 12 cohort), are electing to do our globally recognised International Baccalaureate Programme (IB DP).

Our IB DP provides a rigorous two-year pre-university curriculum, characterised by:
• Academic breadth, depth and rigour, which are recognised by universities worldwide
• Emphasis on promoting international awareness among students
• Attention to developing socially responsible citizens of the world with an awareness of global perspectives

At Wesley, we work with each student to help them select the study path that is right for them, to ensure they make informed choices about their future.

The IB DP is suited to students who aspire to pursue tertiary studies at university in Australia or overseas, and are interested in developing their international awareness and communication skills.

Wesley offers unparalleled opportunities in sport, music, visual and performing arts, community service and leadership.

Wesley’s new boarding facility, Learning in Residence, is purpose built for students in Years 9 – 12, who come from metropolitan Melbourne, rural Australia, and international locations across Asia and Europe.

Learning in Residence builds on Wesley’s four fundamental principles of learning; learning to know, learning to do, learning to live with and learning to be, in the real-life context that living and learning in residence provides.
