Westlake Girls is divided into five vertical Houses, providing senior student leaders with the greatest exposure to juniors, in a variety of leadership roles. This means school values and expectations are effectively modelled by staff and students in families of 440 members. High standards of personal presentation and behaviour, and a willingness to fully participate in school life, is an expectation of every member of the school community.
Our first priority is academic success. Recent academic results place Westlake Girls among the leading schools in NZ Scholarship and we are tracking higher in NCEA than Decile 8-10 Girls’ Schools nationally. Annually, Westlake staff commit to developing their skills, to provide the highest quality education possible.
A wide range of sporting and cultural opportunities are available at Westlake Girls and we are a nationally recognised leader in a number of extra-curricular activities. The Westlake Girls High School and Westlake Boys High School top music ensembles were acclaimed internationally last year when awarded First Equal Choir, First Equal Symphony Orchestra and First in the Concert Band category at the Summa Cum Laude International Music Festival in Vienna, July 2014.
