 Our School

Our students consistently achieve excellent academic results above the national median and our mission is to provide a range of dynamic academic, cultural, sporting and personal learning experiences through quality teaching in a challenging yet supportive environment. 

Accelerated and enrichment programmes are offered to gifted and talented students and multi-level programmes begin at Year 10 with students taking subjects at two or more levels.

Students at New Plymouth Girls’ High School excel at sport and in the performing and visual arts at both provincial and national levels. 

There is a holistic approach to the welfare and education of young women and we strive towards our vision to develop educated, confident young women of outstanding character. 

The region offers the best of town and country with beautiful parks, gardens, lakes, walkways, historic sites and stunning surf beaches. New Plymouth has a vibrant events programme with music festivals and concerts that attract world class artists. There are art galleries, museums, libraries and sports stadiums where international events are held.  New Plymouth District is a safe, welcoming and community orientated place to live.

We are prepared for students who may be stronger in some curriculum areas more than others.  We can tailor a timetable to suit and multi-level students in certain subjects. We carefully monitor students progress to aid them in their learning and send out several academic updates throughout the duration of the year to keep parents and caregivers informed.
