Westlake Boys High School offers an outstanding learning environment for approximately 2,500 teenage boys on the North Shore of Auckland. We believe that by providing a range of opportunities for our students, inside and outside of the classroom, we will help them discover their passion and fulfil their potential.

Our staff members are exceptionally committed to providing additional opportunities for our young men outside the classroom. Most of our teachers contribute to our co-curricular programme, making Westlake an exciting and supportive school of which to be part.

Training and working with us

Deciding to leave your current career and embark on a new one is a big decision – particularly when you factor in re-training in your chosen new field. This leap of faith has been made easier for those wanting to train as a teacher thanks to the Auckland Schools’ Teacher Trainee Programme (ASTTP). The ASTTP offers a brilliant solution for new graduates and career changers – onsite teacher training at a local high school with your university fees paid for and a $12,500 stipend paid to you while you train.

David Ferguson, Headmaster of Westlake Boys’ High School says, "This programme offers a pathway for people who have always considered teaching as a career possibility but weren’t sure how they could make the move. We're really interested in people who have worked in other jobs and are looking to change careers, as well as graduates from a wide range of disciplines”.  

Sixty teacher trainees, aged from the mid-20s to over 50, are enrolled this year, with 24 participating Auckland schools offering this programme. The ASTTP model gives teacher trainees the advantage of training on-the-job, alongside outstanding teachers and mentors, giving them first-hand experience of all school life. While training, they complete their Graduate or Post Graduate teachers diploma course online through the University of Waikato. Our teacher trainees can also attend and participate in a dozen professional learning workshops at twelve different schools throughout Auckland.
