Welcome to Westlake Girls High School, an outstanding centre of excellence tailored to girls’ education.
First impressions are important and, as the new Principal for Westlake Girls, I have been very impressed by the pride our students take in their school, how engaged they are in their learning, how well they relate to their teachers, and how enthusiastically they participate in school life. I feel privileged to work with such an inspirational team of teachers and students.
Our students and their wellbeing is at the very heart of what we do. We know that our students achieve highly and are more confident in an all-girls’ learning environment. Our consistently high performance in NCEA and University Entrance reflects this. We believe that by inspiring our girls to love learning today they will leave school confident and optimistic about their potential tomorrow.
While academic excellence is a priority, Westlake Girls offers so much more. The size of our school affords an incredible range of opportunities both inside and outside the classroom. Our students are encouraged to identify what is important to them, what they enjoy doing and where their strengths lie. It is our ambition to motivate every one of our students to be the best that they can be and to ignite passions that will stay with them for a lifetime.
Westlake Girls has an impressive history and an exciting future. The commitment of our teachers and the passion of our students will define that future. I really look forward to being part of it.
