Why choose CBHS?

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 a multi-cultural team focused on assisting all international students in reaching their individual goals so that they may pathway on to the next step in the learning journey.

ESOL International Programme

We want to develop our International students to be confident, connected, and actively involved in their school community.

That’s why we enrol all students learning English as a second language in ESOL classes.
