pretty small school, and also really easy to find a good group of friends because of the small number of students. Teachers are a good bunch and quite easy to talk to especially in senior school. The sport community is amazing and there are so many opportunities in that area, but when it comes to cultural events, there is basically nothing except for diversity day, and it’s quite off-putting for people who come from diverse backgrounds to come to school and not be able to be proud of their cultures and show it off in events outside of school. I know because of the lack of teachers this probably won’t be an option for a while, but I know of students who have moved schools because Mt Hutt didn’t have the right subjects they needed for their careers, so if you are planning on staying at Mt Hutt during NCEA make sure you check the subjects first because there is a limited amount and there isn’t a wide variety. Other than this, I do like Mt Hutt College a lot and do recommend the school.
Great school if you’re wanting a student leadership role or extra curricular activities such as sports/athletics, cross country, swimming, outdoor education but if you’re wanting bookwork then you’ll only be taught if you’re any good at it. Most of the teachers are great chats and you can have some decent banter with them in the senior school. Most of the teachers have great knowledge they just can’t be bothered teaching most students. You’ll pass just about everything if you put the slightest effort in.
