Principal's Message


 Westlake Girls High School is a member of the Australasian Alliance of Girls Schools and guided by the very latest research into girls education. Our global networks include the Girls Schools Association (UK) and the National Coalition of Girls Schools (USA).

We have high expectations for every student. Students bring with them unique skills and attributes and we ensure they’re enabled to pursue personal excellence, in wide ranging disciplines. Five vertical Houses of 440 students encourage leaders and senior students to engage with, and positively influence, juniors while developing self-efficacy and confidence.

A key priority is academic success and enabling life-long learners. 2015 academic results place Westlake among leaders in NZ Scholarship and consistently above decile 8-10 girls’ schools in NCEA. Leadership development and pedagogical innovation is a key Board investment each year, further equipping staff to provide the high quality experiences for students.

Westlake Girls is nationally recognised in a number of disciplines. A range of sporting and cultural opportunities is available with 100% staff involvement in the wider life of the school. Westlake High Schools’ top music ensembles were internationally recognised when awarded First Equal Choir, First Equal Symphony Orchestra and First in Concert Bands at the Summa Cum Laude International Music Festival, in Vienna, July 2014.

Come and see what Westlake can offer your daughter. You will be made most welcome.
