Scots College International

Care & Supervision


If a student’s Parents or Legal Guardian are not living in Wellington during the time the student attends the College, the College will provide guardianship services.

Pastoral Care and Supervision

A programme is put in place to ensure that International Students receive comprehensive pastoral care. As with all students, they are placed in a House or group and the House Dean monitors academic and personal development and reports to parents.

The College oversees all aspects of the student’s life.

The Boarding House Matron, together with the Director of Boarding and Boarding House staff , maintains a close interest in our overseas students who are boarders. The Directors of International Students deal with all major concerns relating to the students and the Headmaster keeps a careful overview.


Scots College belongs to the Wellington Private Education Network (WPEN). WPEN consists of three of New Zealand’s leading private schools; Scots College, Samuel Marsden School and Chilton Saint James School. WPEN provides international students and their families with the highest quality of educational experience.

StudyCare is the WPEN unique first class care and experience programme for international students. Through StudyCare students are offered cultural experiences, student support and tertiary pathways.

Students studying at a WPEN school are well looked after from the moment they arrive in the country, starting with a meet and greet and transfer assistance on arrival at Auckland Airport for all new international students. Students are met by a WPEN representative when they arrive in Wellington. This dedicated member of staff, will help students with school routines, cultural and day to day needs and with settling into their accommodation.

The StudyCare programme launches with a fun orientation day at the start of the school year for students new to Wellington. This is an exciting day out exploring Wellington, getting to know the city and meet new friends. The day concludes with the StudyCare welcome dinner when students are joined by their host families and boarding staff.
