Westlake Girls High School
School Introduction

The school understand you want the very best academic and social experience for your daughter, and choosing the right high school is a big decision. At Westlake Girls your daughter’s wellbeing is at the very heart of everything they do. They take a holistic approach to learning and understand that what happens outside the classroom is just as important to growth, as what happens inside.

High School encompasses a key time of development for the students. They join us as children and leave as young adults, and it is a privilege for us to teach and support them through that transition. They believe by inspiring the students to love learning today, they will leave school confident and optimistic about their potential tomorrow.

Being a single-sex school provides some unique advantages. Research tells the students achieve highly and are more confident in an all-girls learning environment. The school is proud to offer an inclusive, respectful, rich and diverse community where every student is encouraged to find and develop their strengths. It’s a safe place to try new things, and the breadth of opportunity, both inside and outside the classroom, means the students excel in a wide variety of areas. Finding what’s important, enjoying what they do, and discovering new strengths is all part of igniting life-long passions.

They have a strong focus on STEAM (Science, Technology, Engineering, Arts, Maths) and they are also renowned for their success in sports and music. Academically, their consistently impressive performance in NCEA and University Entrance reflects our ethos of discipline, dedication and working smarter.
