Welcome to Selwyn House School

Selwyn House School is an independent girls’ school centrally located in Merivale, Christchurch. We specialise in the future-focused education and development of girls in their formative years (years 1–8). We have a co-ed pre-school, and we offer boarding for out of town girls and international students. Our facilities speak for themselves.

Selwyn House is an International Baccalaureate school

The International Baccalaureate aims to develop inquiring, knowledgeable and caring young people who help to create a better and more peaceful world through intercultural understanding and respect.
