Welcome to Upper Hutt College

Upper Hutt College is a thriving, energetic and successful learning community.

We offer a broad and diverse curriculum that is well-suited to the needs of our students and our community. In the junior school, accelerate and learning assistance classes are offered and students have an exciting range of option subjects from which to choose. In the senior school, an extensive range of courses provide learning opportunities to meet whatever career pathways our students wish to pursue. Excellent NCEA results reflect the school’s commitment to improving student achievement, and our teachers’ own professional learning ensures their thinking and practices are current and focussed on how to improve student learning in the classroom.

Our students are involved in a wide range of activities, including traditional and newer sporting activities, cultural and social activities and the performing arts – there is something to interest every student. Considerable success is achieved by students at a local, national and international level.

Students’ well-being and their connections to the school are strengthened through a strong House system, which effectively breaks the school down into 4 smaller units. House activities encourage student participation and involvement, and provide opportunities for genuine student leadership within the school and the wider Upper Hutt community. Form classes that consist of students from all levels offer a welcoming and supportive base for students new to the college, as well as develop an ongoing connection between home and school.

The completion of our multi-million dollar building refurbishment gives our students modern and attractive classrooms and learning spaces, and enhances the learning experience – our students can grow, shine and be recognised within a safe, supportive and orderly learning environment.

These are exciting times for our school, as we make clear and visible progress towards our vision for Upper Hutt College - a vibrant 21 st Century learning environment that will engage and empower every learner to realise their full potential.
