Élite education

In the 19th century Wairarapa’s wealthy often sent their children to private schools in Britain. In the 20th century, churches in Masterton established private schools based on the British model. St Matthew’s Collegiate School for girls was opened by the Anglican church in 1914. It is one of three Wairarapa schools owned by the Trinity Schools’ Trust Board. The others are Hadlow Preparatory School and Rathkeale College.
