Joining HVHS

Welcome to Hutt Valley High School - HVHS

Founded in 1926, Hutt Valley High School has been a leader in secondary education in Lower Hutt for over 90 years. We provide a quality state education that ensures that every one of our students has the best possible chance to develop their strengths and talents and to achieve success in a way that provides them with a purposeful and rewarding future life.

In its Strategic Plan for the current period 2019 - 2021, the school is focused on helping our students to be healthy, happy and engaged young people who participate in the vast array of activities offered at the school, and who enjoy tremendous success academically while serving others both in their school and wider society. Our school reflects the cultural richness and diversity of modern New Zealand and in this large community there is ample opportunity for all students to find like minds and so develop lasting friendships which contribute to student happiness and well-being. Our diversity is our greatest strength.
