Altiora Peto - I Seek Higher Things

Since 1881 Christchurch Boys’ High School has dedicated itself to educating fine young men towards outstanding achievement. We have a strong heritage and community and a sense of belonging is a key feature of the school. We celebrate academic success and support this through sporting, cultural and social pursuits that further enhance the character and quality of our students.


Our teachers provide a weekly summary of student effort in class to ensure that student progress is well monitored. This allows for timely interventions from both school and home.
