Welcome from our Principal

Nau mai, haere mai!

Welcome to John Paul II High School. We are a proudly Catholic co-educational secondary school, serving students from Years 9-13 on the stunning West Coast. Students thrive in our safe and inclusive small school environment, where every student is encouraged to meet their God-given potential in and outside the classroom.

Underpinning our engaging local curriculum are the founding Marist Pillars and Mercy Values, and our school’s LIGHT Values: Learning, Integrity, Guardianship, Hauora, and Truth. These values are the strong foundation for a great secondary school experience that prepares students for success within school, and in life beyond the school gates. We believe that our Catholic faith should be lived, shared and celebrated. We do this through many service and leadership opportunities within school, the community, and St Patrick’s Parish.

At John Paul II, we work hard to create a genuine sense of family and community where every student is valued and supported. Students and families new to the school comment on the high standards and warm relationships we enjoy here. We don’t just enrol students, we pride ourselves on enrolling families, too. We believe that every student should bring their ‘A’ game, every day, and in all they do. Our talented teachers, deans, and support staff are passionate about education and work collaboratively to support every student to achieve success in their chosen pathway.

Our small class sizes allow for a personalised education, where students have the advantage of individual attention and high-quality teaching and learning. Students at John Paul II enjoy excellent academic success, consistently exceeding local and national achievement statistics. Equally, students have access to vocational pathways through the West Coast Trades Academy, Gateway for work experience, and distance learning opportunities. With a wide range of sporting and cultural opportunities on offer, students at John Paul II truly experience a fantastic education.

John Paul II High School is a great school with much to offer. Come and join us.
