Onslow College is the school
Onslow College is a state secondary co-educational school with a roll of approximately 1220. Established in 1956, it is situated in Johnsonville, Wellington.
Onslow College is driven by a sense of community rather than conformity. Our challenge is to enable students to develop their potential through high quality education in a cooperative, friendly, stimulating and well-disciplined environment.
Onslow College takes great pride in delivering the best possible educational opportunities for those students fortunate to attend the school.
We believe every student can achieve academic success and have an extensive pastoral care network to let them achieve to their potential. A strong partnership with home is a key ingredient in this goal and we both value and encourage parents and families to take an active interest in their child's achievements at school. Working together we can help our young people develop their individual strengths and identities and build the confidence to be able to contribute to society.
