Westlake Girls High School




We would love you to join us at Westlake Girls High School for your overseas study experience.  Westlake Girls is New Zealand's largest state secondary school for girls, with 2,200 students, recognised both nationally and internationally as a school with an outstanding level of achievement in academic studies, music and sports and the arts. 

The International students at Westlake Girls bring a vibrancy and richness to our community which is fundamental to our high school’s identity. As Director of the International Team, I love being part of this community and meeting so many wonderful students from all around the world.

To see students arrive with big dreams at the start of their adventure, and to work alongside them to turn those dreams into reality, is a great privilege. Whether they join at Year 9, or complete just their senior years with us, it is always a pleasure to watch them grow and flourish academically and socially.

We love hearing our students’ success stories – whether it’s gaining entry into a prestigious university, or achieving a personal goal. As part of the Westlake family, our international students are a source of great pride.

The International team dedicated to assisting our International students comprises a special group of people. They come from different parts of the world, bringing unique cultures together to make our students feel welcome and supported. We offer 24/7 emergency telephone support – so our students have the comfort of knowing someone is always available to them.
