About Wesley College

Wesley’s 1st XV has won the NZ ‘Top 4’ title a record 5 times – equal with Kelston Boys High School.
And our League 1st XIII has in 2015 year won the Development grade at the NZ schools tournament, beating St Thomas of Christchurch in the final.
Star player Wetere Pompey was selected in the New Zealand schools team. He is also contracted to the Sydney Roosters.
