New Plymouth Girls' High School - Information

With over a century of tradition since its foundation, New Plymouth Girls' High School provides students with the technical and personal skills needed for life in the 21st century whilst retaining traditional values and pride in our heritage.

The school is set in 11 hectares of beautiful grounds. There are excellent facilities to provide instruction in all aspects of the New Zealand curriculum in both classrooms, gymnasia, playing fields and specialist rooms.

The school has an outstanding record of academic success in external qualifications. The main national qualification offered is NCEA, or the National Certificate in Educational Achievement. Students may qualify at Level One, Level Two and Level Three and gain either Unit Standards or in most cases Achievement Standards, which are rated as Excellence, Merit or Achieved. Students may also qualify for New Zealand Scholarshop, the highest national qualification available.

The success of the students is in large a measure attributable to the skills and dedication of our highly qualified teaching staff who take great pride in the students' successes in all fields of endeavour.
