Altiora Peto – I Seek Higher Things
Welcome to Christchurch Boys’ High School. This is a great place to learn and we have a history of over 130 years of educating boys to be fine young men. We have high expectations of our boys and strong relationships with them. Academic success and moral strength are considered paramount and our boys excel across academic, cultural and sporting fields. We value tradition, we honour 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.
Our rich history includes Old Boys who have made their mark in the worlds of the military, the arts and culture, commerce, law, community service and sport. We have close ties with our very supportive and active community and we are proud of our place in New Zealand education.
Our success in academic, sporting and cultural fields is due to a desire to make a difference to all of our young men’s achievement. The staff of Christchurch Boys’ High School share a vision of standing alongside our students and supporting them to high standards of performance and character.
The fine young man mission of the school is supported by wide ranging cultural and sporting opportunities and personal development is an emphasis.
Christchurch Boys’ High School is a warm and energetic place with staff, students, parents and Old Boys working positively together with a strong sense of purpose and identity.
