At Wesley, we believe coeducation is the best way to prepare girls and boys for the world in which they will live.

We inspire learning in an environment that reflects real-world communities and workplaces, setting students up to thrive and succeed beyond our walls.

As a leader in coeducation for over 40 years, Wesley has made this proven pedagogy central to our philosophy and vision.

Fostering inclusiveness and interaction

By learning in a coeducation environment, boys and girls cultivate mutual respect, understanding, and support for one another. Students realise and appreciate their own individual value as well as each other’s.

By learning together, girls and boys cooperate and collaborate in ways that enable them to embrace and celebrate their differences as well as their similarities. Students develop skills as they navigate the range of perspectives that coeducation brings through lively debate, critical questioning and exploration.

Girls and boys embrace leadership positions across all areas of learning, providing all students with strong female and male role models.

Tailored learning

Our teachers recognise that every girl and boy is a unique individual and they are skilled at developing students with diverse learning needs, abilities and interests. They create a safe and supportive environment where every girl and boy feels comfortable and confident to express themselves and are encouraged to actively participate in all facets of school life.

Preparation for life beyond school

Developing and learning in a coeducational environment provides girls and boys with a strong foundation for building respectful and enduring social and professional relationships. Our students develop strength and independence and emerge as balanced, well-rounded individuals.
