About Us

Buller High School is a modern, co-educational, multi-course, Year 9-15 Secondary School, serving the town of Westport and surrounding areas.

First established as a District High School in Lyndhurst Street in 1899, the School moved to the present site in 1922 and continues to provide quality education by developing and maintaining a wide range of academic, vocational, recreational, sporting, and cultural courses to meet the changing needs of its community.

The roll in 2021 hovers around 340 with an average Year 9 intake of about 80 pupils drawn from the four local contributing Primary Schools each year (Granity School, St Canices School, Westport North School and Westport South School).

​Buller High School provides a safe and secure environment for the general education of pupils in Years 9 to 15 following National Curriculum Guidelines.

Pupils are encouraged to value knowledge, to develop independent learning skills and good study habits, to improve skills of judgment, decision-making and communication, and to take pride in high personal achievement.
