We welcome enrolment applications from parents both in-zone, out-of-zone and international

Christchurch Boys’ High School proudly values high academic achievement while also recognising the importance of creating well-rounded young men able to make a positive contribution to both New Zealand society and our global society.

We encourage our teachers to build positive relationships with their students, to know the academic and social needs of their students, and to show that they care about the personal and collective successes of their students.

We have close ties with our active and supportive community of parents, Old Boys and friends who contribute enormously to our success.

The staff of Christchurch Boys’ High School do have high expectations of the performance and character of all boys and understand their role in building meaningful relationships and acting as significant role models.
