Course Selection for 2024

July 20, 2023

Kia ora parents & caregivers

This week we have been introducing the course selection process to our students. All students have been emailed a guide to course selection. As a parent or caregiver you will need to be familiar with the timeline and how you can support your young person to make the right decisions for next year.

It would be helpful to sit down with your young person and look at the Wellington College curriculum website to become familiar with the options.

Please note that this year course selection forms are not compulsory, although they are being used by some tutor teachers.

This year, the tutor conferences being held on 16th August will have an emphasis on course selection. It is our preference that parents and caregivers will attend these conferences with their students.

The final date for submission to tutor teachers will be no later than the 16th August.

Where can I find all of the information?

  • Year 10 courses and options can be found here

  • Year 11 courses and options can be found here

  • Year 12 courses and options can be found here

  • Year 13 courses and options can be found here

  • You can see a quick overview of the Wellington College curriculum here.

Who can help?

We understand that at times it is difficult to reach a decision and if that is the case please email your son’s Tutor teacher for advice. Learning Area Leaders also will be able to provide advice and guidance, and a list is available here.
