Welcome to Hutt Valley High School

Online course selection and enrolment conversation bookings for Year 9 2024 are now closed. Any changes need to be made by contacting the Year 9 Deans.

Due to high demand, some of our subjects are now fully subscribed and are no longer available, however, we will do our best to place students across the full range of subjects we offer.

Year 9 Subject Information

Year 9 students will have a programme which covers each of the eight Essential Learning Areas.

English, Maths, Physical Education and Health, Science, and Social Studies will be taught in form class groups for three hours per week. The Arts, Languages and Technology will be taught in option groups.  This allows for subject choices within these Learning Areas.

The option subjects will be structured as follows:

  • Students will choose one course that runs for two terms, and one course that runs for one term from Technology and The Arts (That is, two courses for The Arts and two courses for Technology).  
  • Students will choose one full language course.
  • All students will study Te Whanake for one spell per week for the full year.
  • In addition to these courses, there are some pathway selections available, to support students whose core literacy and/or numeracy needs additional work. (Literacy, Numeracy, ELAN). These can be discussed during the enrolment conversation.

Due to the resources available, some subjects have a limited number of student places.
