Western Springs College,  known to those who teach and learn here as ‘Springs’, is an educational environment where students can discover and develop unique personal strengths that allow them to share in the building of a just and sustainable society.

Our college occupies a special place in New Zealand’s educational landscape. We are the only co-educational, non-uniform, wharekura-equipped secondary school in the country. This status doesn’t just make us different, it makes us effective within the context of modern New Zealand society.

We encourage academic achievement not as a prize fight, but because it opens doors that allow our students to follow any pathway they choose. We’re actively engaged with the communities we serve and the tertiary establishments that accept our graduates.

Our school is currently undergoing the largest rebuild in the history of New Zealand secondary education. The butterfly that will emerge from this chrysalis of construction is destined to change the way educationalists think about pre-university learning environments.
