    Headmasters welcome

    Our vision is to be a community educating each boy to be a fine young man. Welcome to that

    community. We have 130 years experience in supporting the boys who enrol here to become fine

    young men. They excel across a wide range of academic, sporting and cultural pursuits. We honour

    tradition, we value excellence, we teach values and we celebrate success in a school environment that

    cares for student welfare, recognises cultural diversity and meets the learning needs of a wide range

    of students.

    We have a long record of scholarship that has been enhanced in the last few years by top Scholarships

    results and excellent results in the Cambridge examinations. NCEA results are on average 5-10%

    above the normal mean for boys at similar schools. We have in place very successful programmes

    that support the learning of all our young men no matter what their abilities.

    Personal development is an emphasis of the school. Students are encouraged to develop the personal

    qualities necessary to participate in society. Good dress, good presentation, good attitude, good

    manners, good communication skills and a good balance to life are constantly reinforced.

    Many leadership opportunities and team activities develop self-esteem and confidence in working

    with, and reacting to, others. Respect for others is expected.

    Our school is a very energetic place with staff, students, parents and Old Boys committing an

    enormous amount of time to ensure that the students have the opportunity, teaching and guidance to

    make them active and valuable members of the Global Society.

    Christchurch Boys High School, founded in 1881, has a number

    of distinctive features which taken together give the School its

    particular character. It is an all-boys state school with 1337 pupils,

    and it has fine buildings and grounds. Through the years its

    pupils and former pupils have established strong traditions and a

    reputation for high achievement.

    In its facilities and in the learning opportunities it offers, Christchurch

    Boys' High School is a modern school with a rich past. It aims to

    provide education of quality for boys of today in an environment

    which preserves the best traditions and values of the past.

    The School believes that individuals are important and values each

    pupil whatever his abilities and his interests. While the School

    continues to expect the highest of academic standards from the

    able, it works to increase the efforts and lift the attainment of all

    its students.

    The School believes that its main function is academic (in the

    broadest sense of classroom learning), but it also believes that a

    boy should be involved in and exposed to a range of sporting and

    cultural activities. These the School positively encourages. It also

    accepts the responsibility to help each boy to grow in self-respect

    and in concern for others.

    The School believes in high standards and in the pursuit of

    excellence - in academic work, in sport and culture, in discipline

    and behaviour and in service to others. It has strong links with the

    community, particularly through the many active groups of Old

    Boys. The School is aware that its pupils are going to live their

    lives in a world that is rapidly changing. For Christchurch Boys
