At Golden Bay High School students prepare for the future by learning skills and knowledge, and developing the personal resources that are needed to live satisfying, balanced and responsible lives.
We cater for all students, whatever their needs. Part of our philosophy is to take into account the interests and abilities of each student. We devise individual programmes to support maximum learning where necessary.
Please contact us if you need any further assistance - we would love to hear from you.

Most students will have received their results by now. Well done to students who studied and reaped the rewards! Reports will be emailed next week. This is a good time for students to think carefully about
their study plans. There are not many weeks left of school for seniors!
Changes to Covid systems
As you will be aware, masks are no longer required on school transport, and no longer strongly recommended at school. We will be supporting students and staff who choose to wear a mask.
Other health processes remain in place. Thank you for keeping students at home who are ill and may be contagious, and for encouraging washing of hands.
Daffodil day celebrations – better late than never!
Well done to our Senior Exec for organising yellow T-shirt tie dying, a mufti day and sausage sizzle. Thanks also to the Home Economics department for the cupcakes which sold out very quickly!
Our delayed celebrations (Due to exams and the weather event) raised money for a very worthy cause and were great fun!
School Ball – Friday 23rd September
Tickets are on sale for the school ball and excitement is rising.
We are looking forward to a great night.
