Preparatory School

Life at Prep

Nelson College Preparatory School is a unique learning environment. It is the only New Zealand independent boys school attached to a state secondary school. The Preparatory School is set within the grounds of Nelson College and the boys have access to a wide range of teaching facilities in the College.

Boys are taught by well qualified and dedicated form teachers and by specialist college teachers. This blend allows the students to study in a classroom environment with other boys who are equally motivated to achieve. Programmes are tailored to the specific needs of boys and we will ensure that your son is given the opportunity to strive for academic achievement to the best of his ability.

The Preparatory School provides many leadership opportunities and enjoys recognition for its academic performance, sporting and cultural achievements. We are proud to provide each student with an excellent education in a supportive learning environment that promotes self-discipline, motivation and excellence in learning. Our goal is to prepare the boys for college life and to allow them to “take their place in the world”.
