WELCOME TO UPPER HUTT COLLEGE

 

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 is approaching the completion of a building programme that will help us to realise our vision, that of a vibrant 21st century 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.

For Level Two, the pass rate was 86% and at Level Three 78%. 17 students gained Level One with Excellence endorsement and 35 with Merit. At Level Two 9 gained overall Excellence and 33 Merit; and at Level Three, 15 achieved Excellence and 15 Merit. Many other students gained subject endorsements. 63% of Level Three students achieved University Entrance and four University Scholarships were awarded. These achievements are commended in a letter from the Minister of Education - see attached under the NEWS tab.
 

ENROLMENTS

Enrolment applications for 2015 are currently being accepted. We are no longer required to limit enrolments to a designated zone and welcome enrolments from any area. We request that enrolments are in in by August 10 so we can interview prospective students, test, and begin on 2015 timetabling. Early enrolment will also help with option selection.

 Enrolments for 2014 are accepted as a matter of course, though a number of subjects are full.
