Welcome to Southland Girls' High School, Invercargill, NZ

Open Day


Established in 1879, Southland Girls' High School is the third oldest girls' school in New Zealand.  We are a high performing academic school with over 140 years experience teaching girls, and are known for our 21st century curriculum and modern facilities. Our school provides a high quality education for all, helping students find pathways to Universities all over the world.

Our curriculum provides girls with personalised learning opportunities ensuring every student's needs, interests and abilities are met. The level of learning is not determined by age - multi-level learning is common and considered a normal part of learning at SGHS.  Our innovative curriculum is nationally recognised for being unique and creative. The demands of a modern education require girls to not only build on their intellect, but also nuture their creativity.

SGHS provides an extensive curriculum.  We recognise the importance of allowing girls to develop their expertise in all areas of learning.  The Sciences and Performing Arts are areas of real strength.  High quality facilities are provided for all learning areas because we want our girls to have the best. We believe and expect our girls to grow their intellect, and to take risks with their learning so they can be successful.
