Hiring Christchurch Boys’ High School Hall

The Christchurch Boys’ High School Hall is available for hire to community and commercial groups.  Any group who wishes to hire the School Hall must ensure that their function and purpose of hire aligns with the values and strategic direction of the school.

All forms and documentation are available below.

The Process

A ‘Request to Hire form is to be completed and returned to the school either by post or by email.  The form can be printed and completed by hand or saved from the website and typed.  On receipt, the School will assess the availability, and forward to the Headmaster (or Senior Master) for approval.  Prospective clients will be advised of a decision on their request within 7 days.

Once approved, a full ‘School Hall Hire Agreement’ will be sent to the Hirer for completion.  This agreement includes the specific terms of the hire, and the general Terms and Conditions of hire.  An estimate of the cost of hire will be sent with the agreement.
