Welcome to Upper Hutt College, a multicultural co-educational secondary school with a roll of around 1100 students which includes a number of International students from Europe, South America and Asia.  

We are a school with a tradition of excellence in academic achievement, sport, cultural activities and the performing arts. A wide variety of subjects at all levels caters for our diverse population of students and an extensive extra-curricular programme offers all students the opportunity to represent the school, follow a passion or simply enjoy an activity with friends, new and old.  

Our students enjoy a safe, supportive and creative learning environment, where a sense of community is fostered within our House system and all students have the opportunity to develop their leadership skills.  

The school has now completed its 5-year long building programme, and we finally have the vibrant 21st century learning environment, with its bright modern classrooms and spaces that we envisaged. Combined with the latest in IT, with students invited to Bring their own digital device (BYOD), and with teachers who are committed to the students, we provide a learning environment that engages every learner so that each will realise their full potential.

This website offers you a glimpse of life at Upper Hutt College; please contact us for more information.
