Learning for Life

Our Mission is to create a supportive learning environment where all students will gain the knowledge, understanding, skills and attitudes which will equip them to make a positive contribution in the world of today and in the future.

Waimate High School has approximately 240 Year 7 to 13 students and every student is unique and important.

At Waimate High School we want our students to be confident, connected, actively involved, lifelong learners. This is our vision for our students. Learning programmes aim to enable students to foster and develop these essential qualities. Through a range of learning programmes, sporting, cultural and social activities, students are encouraged to engage actively and positively in their learning, to always try their best, and to reach for personal excellence.
