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.

Our senior prizegiving was held on November 1. Main prizewinners are detailed on our News Page. Year 9 and Year 10 Prizegivings will be held in the college hall on Thursday morning, December 11.



November 15: External exams are now in full swing. Good luck to all our students. We are expecting strong results again - both numeracy and literacy are over 90% at Level One and around 80% of students already have their Level Two.



Term 4 has seen the last of our brand new blocks open - E block, comprising 15 brand new classrooms and a sixth computer suite. All major works will be finished by the end of this year.

Our confirmed NCEA results show further pleasing improvement on the successes of 2012. At year 11, 77% of students achieved Level One - literacy was 96% and numeracy 94%. 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.
