The choice of secondary school for your daughter or son needs to be a carefully considered decision. Whanganui High School is an outstanding school, with nationally significant points of difference across all academic, cultural, sporting, and service to the community areas.

In addition, our school values of LIFE (Learning, Integrity, Fellowship, Excellence) constantly underpin the balanced and caring education we offer to all of our students.

Students at Whanganui High School enjoy all the advantages associated with attending a large well-functioning secondary school – a diverse range of educational opportunities; access to our dedicated and well-qualified teachers; a fully inclusive and welcoming learning environment – as well as benefitting from the personalised learning that occurs across the entire school.
