Welcome to Havelock North High School

“The world is a book and those who do not travel read only one page.”

- Augustine of Hippo 

​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​Our international students add cultural diversity to Havelock North High School.  Our students mix with fee-paying students from many countries: Japan, Germany, Korea, China, Brazil, Thailand and more.  We welcome these students into our school and they soon embrace the "kiwi" lifestyle.  Students enjoy education opportunities while attending Havelock North High School and living in beautiful Hawke's Bay.

Our school is a co-educational modern school with a roll of 1039 students.  Our experienced staff offers a wide range of subjects to study.  Our school sets the highest academic standards and students consistently achieve outstanding results in national examinations.

Students' individual learning and English language needs will be met.  Our international students find they excel at English on return to school in their own country.

Students have the opportunity to take part in a  wide range of sporting and outdoor activities. Havelock North High School has an excellent reputation for music, drama, and the arts.

Havelock North High School has agreed to observe and be bound by the Code of Practice for Pastoral Care of International Students, published by the Minister of Education.
