About Us

Otago Girls' High School, founded in 1870, was the first state secondary school for girls in New Zealand and reputed to be the sixth oldest in the world. Many school families have an association with the school that spans over four generations. Because of our long history, traditions such as the Celebration Service and Prize-Giving are regarded as highlights of the school year.

The school's fundamental aim is to provide a high tech education for the twenty-first century. The school has always promoted the highest standards of achievement for all young women in every field: academic, sporting and cultural. A warm, welcoming and secure environment is provided to all our students, their whanau, staff and the community. An extensive guidance network provides personal, social, educational and vocational support.
