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.
