Welcome to the International Department of Westlake Boys High School.
We are a friendly supportive team who are committed to the growth and well-being of our students.
Pastoral Care is paramount to us; we aim to create a sense of belonging knowing our students are safe, happy and engaged. We want our students home and school life to be a memorable rewarding experience. We have a well-resourced International Department and provide first language support. Strong links to our students families allow us to develop an understanding of each student’s needs.
Teachers at Westlake Boys are dedicated to ensuring each student aims high academically to achieve his potential, by making lessons interesting and relevant. They interact well to understand how best, each boy learns. We are committed to providing an outstanding learning environment and we are proud of our educational reputation. Year on year our academic results are amongst the strongest in New Zealand, where many of our students gain entry into prestigious universities both local and internationally.
Outside the classroom, we want you to participate in a wide variety of activities including sport and cultural, to develop new skills and leadership qualities.
As a school we recognise the landscape of the twenty-first century and do our best to enable and encourage our students to be able to flourish within it.
We believe that providing a range of opportunities for our students, both in and out of the classroom, we help them discover a passion to fulfill their potential.
