Worldwide School

Our History

Worldwide was established in 1989 by three businessmen, and the original premise was at 1 Queen Street. In 1996, the school was purchased by two of their senior staff and changed the school name and moved to its following location at 8 Commerce street. 
Then in 2014, Worldwide School moved to their current location. 80 Anzac Avenue is a six-floor building that Worldwide School shares with another private provider, Crown Institute of Studies. Moving there marked the beginning of another period of growth, where from 2016, Worldwide School had at any one time up to 250 students and usually from 25-30 different nationalities.
In September 2021, the owners sold Worldwide School to KIEL, a trusted partner who owns and operates the Crown Institute of Studies. The two schools will not be merging but will be working as partners to enhance each other’s educational services. WWSE now has access to more training resources and facilities, more options for further studies (vocational qualifications or pathways to university studies) and employment opportunities.
