Waitaki Boys' High School

About Us

Inspiring young men of outstanding character

We are enriched by a proud heritage, but forward-looking and progressive in our task of educating boys to meet the challenges of the new millennium.

The environment and traditions of the school have exercised a remarkable effect upon generations of boys. We are blessed with a spectacular site, magnificent buildings and gardens, and generous resources. Our ethos is that boys will “be their best”, in regard to their academic performance, culture, sports and most importantly their character. We are clear about our primary task. It is to identify and develop the potential of every boy. We want our students to graduate as confident, self-motivated and well-rounded young men, ready to find their place in the world.

With a roll of 450, we are small enough to know each boy well, and to recognise his individual character and needs, but large enough to offer an extensive academic and growing vocational curriculum, and an impressive co-curricular programme.

Waitaki Boys' has been known as one of the great schools of NZ and with the rate of progress we are making people will be saying that again sooner rather than later. 

It is indeed an exciting time to be a Waitakian.
