Hutt International Boys’ School aims to provide for each student a programme of internationalisation aimed at developing, and enriching, the international awareness and perspective of each student.

Students in Years 7 to 10 partake in identified and designated compulsory internationalisation topics from the curriculum. This includes the studying of a minimum of one foreign language until the completion of Year 10.

In Years 11 to 13, the continued study of identified and designated topics from the curriculum, and involvement in internationally focused co-curricular activities, determines if the student will achieve his Graduation Certificate “with Internationalisation”. Students nominate the topics they will cover each year to contribute toward their Internationalisation total.Students have the opportunity to enter International English, Science, Computing, Language, Maths and Social Science competitions. The Arts regularly use and explore materials and techniques from around the world.
