Growing Connections

Situated in the rural town of Methven, south of Christchurch, Mount Hutt College is a co-educational school, catering to the needs of learners from Years 7 to 13.  Our school values of PRIDE: Passion, Respect, Integrity, Diversity and Excellence underpin our day-to-day work.

Our school vision is based upon developing Our People | Ō mātou tāngata and Our Place | Ō mātou whenua.  Learning is linked to growth in three dimensions: Mind | Hinengaro, Body | Tinana and Spirit | Wairua.  We aim to connect with ākonga and whānau so that our young people can see their progress in their Growth Profile.
