Queen Margaret College is Wellington's leading, independent girls' school, providing education for students from Year 1 to 13 with a co-educational Pre-School. This International Baccalaureate (IB) World School delivers the curriculum continuum of the three IB Programmes: the Primary Years Programme, the Middle Years Programme and the International Baccalaureate Diploma. The curriculum fits closely with the holistic philosophy and international vision of the College. The school is the largest, independent girls' school in Wellington and the only girls' school in the lower North Island offering a dual qualification pathway of either the IB Diploma or NCEA.

Established in 1919 as a Presbyterian girls' college, our location in a heritage building in inner-city Thorndon, provides ready access to all that a cosmopolitan capital city offers. We celebrate the cultural diversity of our students and that we are situated close to embassies, high commissions and Parliament which is feature of the school from early in its history. The perspective gained here is culturally rich and internationally-minded.

We enjoy a reputation for outstanding academic results. Girls have numerous opportunities for involvement, high-level performance and leadership through sporting and cultural activities and the extensive exchange programme with sister schools. The College is future focused with technology integrated throughout the curriculum equipping students for today's digital world.

The College also offers onsite student accommodation for Year 7 - 13 students. Queen Margarer House has forty-four rooms and we are the only girls' school in Wellington offering such accommodation to students.

Queen Margaret College is one of New Zealand’s leading private schools for girls and is known for its outstanding examination results. Across any measure, we are one of the top academic achieving schools in New Zealand. We are authorised to teach all three IB programmes, PYP, MYP and the IB Diploma, recognised by universities worldwide as outstanding preparation for tertiary education.

Our school offers small class sizes, outstanding facilities and teachers who are committed to helping the girls achieve academic success.

Our students are encouraged to be involved in the life of the school as there are many opportunities available such as sport, music and performing arts. Wireless internet is available throughout the school making it easy to keep in touch with family and friends at home.

Year 9–13 domestic and international students can board at Queen Margaret House. Cared for in this new, purpose-built boarding house, the girls will learn how to live together in a community, developing self-confidence, independence, adaptability and responsibility. Boarding provides rich opportunities to make friends, to speak English and to experience New Zealand’s great outdoors.

Living overseas gives our students a much wider world view and often helps them decide what they really want out of life. The international team here is proud to be part of their experience in New Zealand and work hard to make it the best it can be.
