Welcome to Rotorua Boys’ High School website

Tena koutou, nga matua, nga whanaunga, nga kaitautoko, me nga hoa o te kura.

We value the opportunity to play a part in the education of your son. We recognise the vital importance of education for young people if they are to meet successfully the challenges and demands of a rapidly changing world.

Schools in New Zealand are also having to meet many changes. We at Rotorua Boys’ High School are prepared for these changes, putting the best interests of our students first.

As the oldest secondary school serving Rotorua we believe that, despite these changes, there are certain constant values in education. These values have been with this school throughout its long history and will ensure that it goes on providing an excellent education for the young men of Rotorua. Furthermore, Rotorua Boys’ High School is part of the traditional and successful network of state boys’ high schools that has been long established throughout New Zealand. We believe that boys’ schools are the best for boys!

This school provides leadership in many aspects of education and enjoys national and international recognition for its academic excellence, for its sporting achievements and for the quality of its cultural endeavours. All students are provided with the opportunity to develop to their full potential and to strive for excellence. To this end your son will receive our every encouragement. We are proud of the achievements of the students of Rotorua Boys’ High School - both past and present.

The school is superbly equipped with modern facilities and set in an attractive environment of trees and impressive playing fields. We have a large and well qualified staff who are dedicated to the well being of all students.

Our shared vision is “to become the outstanding Boys’ High School in New Zealand.”

Thank you for considering Rotorua Boys’ High School. We look forward to your association with our fine school.
