Altiora Peto - Seek Higher Things
Meaningful relationships, integrity, high expectations, respect
Educating fine young men towards outstanding achievement
Christchurch Boy's High School is a leading New Zealand boys school where we draw on our strong heritage and inclusive community. We value leading and connected educational practice. Every student through their relationships with their teachers and peers and their sense of belonging to Boys’ High School, can aspire to achieve higher things. We celebrate academic success and support this through sporting, cultural and social pursuits that enhance the character and quality of our fine young men. We develop men who can lead New Zealand and the world to be a better place.
For the next 1-3 years, we will prioritise a "One School" approach to -
“Boys have pathways for successful lives and our curriculum creates resilient, adaptable, hardworking thinkers and communicators with a strong sense of place and identity.”
“We know how every boy is doing and respond accordingly.”
“As a school we have a way of teaching boys that consistently meets the boys learning needs and enables them to achieve aspirational goals.”
“Preparing for the school’s future through having a clear vision and a considered and prudent approach to realising it.”
“Evolving and defining our traditions and in doing so reinforcing the contribution CBHS makes to and with the community.”
The CBHS curriculum aligns between the junior and senior school and into pathways beyond school. The curriculum is wider than the classroom and considers the entire Boys’ High Experience – there is purpose to everything we do.
All students experience success in a wide range of educational outcomes and priority learners, including those capable of endorsement and scholarship, are targeted and are supported in order to experience success.
Our Teaching professionals develop and continually evolve a profile of effective teaching for CBHS which delivers on our culture of excellence and provides
guidance and support to the CBHS teaching community.
